TITHEN the Royal Archasological Institute visited Car- 
^" lisle in 1859, the late Mr. Hodgson Hinde read a 
paper in the historical section, On the Early History of 
Cumberland. From it we quote the following : 
I have had occasion more than once to point out the inaccuracy, 
not to use a harsher term, of the authorities which have hitherto 
been reHed on, in tracing the general history of Cumberland. It is 
foreign to the design of this essay to enter into local details, or I should 
have to expose errors and mistatements at every step : but it may 
not be out of place to give a few instances, by way of showing how 
much caution is necessary in sifting the received statements of our 
Cumbrian topographers. The narrative of the foundation of the 
Priory of Lanercost is familiar to us all, repeated as it has been 
by one writer after another, and yet the whole story is a fiction. 
We are told that that religious house had its origin in the remorse 
of Robert de Vaux for the treacherous murder of Gils Beuth, the 
former owner of Gilsland, of which his father, Hubert de Vaux, 
had obtained a grant from Kanulf de Micenis. Now it happens 
that an enrolment of the charter, by which Hubert became pos- 
sessed of Gilsland, is preserved amongst the Carta Antiquje in 
the Tower, from which it plainly appears that Gils Beuth was 
alread)' dead before Hubert had any connection with Gilsland ; and 
we further learn as well from the charter, as from the Testa de 
Nevil, that the title of the latter was derived from Henry H and not 
from Ranulf, whose interest in Cumberland ceased before the close 
of the reign of Henry I. A fundamental error of the Chronicon 
Cumbrias is the deduction of the titles of all the estates in Cumber- 
land from Ranulf de Micenis whereas this is the case with two 
only. The bulk of the remainder were granted directly by the Crown 
in the reign of Henry I., Gilsland, as we have seen, and two or three 
others, by Henry II and the remainder to one individual by Richard I. 
Another mistake is the identification of Hugh de Morville, lord of 
the barony of Burgh with his more notorious namesake, the mur- 
derer of Thomas a Becket. Hugh was a common name in the Mor- 
ville family, as appears by various documents in which we meet with 
the name of Hugh de Morville, at dates and under circumstances 


which show that it could be neither of the above. Hugh de Morville, 
of Burgh, was the grandson of Simon de Morville, who was probably 
the brother, and certainly the contemporary, of Becket's assassin. 
The former survived to the reign of John ; whereas the latter is stated 
by all the biographers of the saint to have died at Jerusalem, whither 
he had gone on a pilgrimage in expiation of his offence, and to have 
been buried in front of the Temple, within three years of the murder. 
He was lord of Westmorland, and of Knaresburgh in Yorkshire, at 
the same time that Burgh was possessed by Simon, the grandfather 
of his namesake. It would be easy to multiply instances of misstate- 
ments, if it were necessary. Many of them originate with the Chroni- 
con Cumbrias, but these are amplified and augmented by succeeding 
compilers, especially by tico persons of the name of Denton, whose manu- 
script collections have been the main source from whence the modern 
historians of the county have derived their information as to the early 
descent of property, and the genealogy of its possessors. The con- 
tents of these storehouses of errors must be discarded by the future 
topographer, or used only to compare with more authentic documents. 
Hodgson Hinde, Archceological Journal, vol. xvi, pp. 217, 234-5. 

Such being the opinion entertained of the two Denton 
manuscript histories of Cumberland by an authority so 
competent to pronounce as the late Mr. Hodgson Hinde, 
the question may well be asked why this Society publishes 
one of them. The answer is— that the policy of this Society 
is gradually to publish, in its Transactions and its extra 
volumes, every unpublished manuscript that relates to the 
two counties with which the Society deals, in the hopes 
that some day the man will arise, who will amalgamate 
the materials thus provided into an ideal county history of 
Cumberland and Westmorland. If the question further 
be asked, why the manuscript now published is not more 
fully supplied with notes: the answer is — that to do so 
would be to anticipate, for Cumberland, the ideal history 
we have just alluded to, and further that such notes could 
not be fully and correctly supplied until the local monastic 
chartularies, the pre-Reformation episcopal registers, and 
other documents are published, — a task this Society hopes 
to accomplish. One thing is certain — the labour of the 
future historian or historians of Cumberland will be much 


facilitated by the ver}' excellent index, which Mr. R. J. 
Whitwell, of Kendal, has with great labour and love 
compiled, and for which as well on behalf of the Society 
as on my own private and particular behalf, I beg to 
tender him the best thanks we can : he has added immen- 
sely to the value of this publication. 

The two Dentons are John and Thomas : John was of 
Cardew, and his burial is thus recorded in the registers of 
the parish of Dalston : 

1617 November 26 Jhon Denton de Cardew armiger Brd.* 

He married a daughter of Sir John Dalston of Dalston 
Hall, and is said to have been imprisoned in the Tower of 
London, on a quarrel between him and Dr. Robinson, 
Bishop of Carlisle. During his imprisonment he made 
extracts from the records kept in the Tower, and from 
these he compiled his history of Cumberland, of which 
several copies, or rather editions, for they all differ, are in 
existence : the original copy cannot be found, but by the 
list of bishops given in it, as preserved in other copies, 
it must have been written about 1610. The following 
notes refer to the various editions, which have been used 
for the purposes of this present publication. 

1. The late Major Fairtlough, of Roodlands, Keswick, possessed a 
very early copy of John Denton's Manuscript, which is now in 
Canada. The Editor copied this many years ago. 

2. The Dean and Chapter of Carlislepossess a folio copy of John Den- 
ton's MS. It isbound up in the 6th volume of the Machell collections, 
and was made about the year 1670 : on it is written " Transcribing 
cost me 5s." This copy belonged to the great local antiquary Thomas 
Machell, and came with his other papers to William Nicolson, Bishop 
of Carlisle, 1702 to 1726, v\ho has added some notes. Nicolson had 
the Machell papers bound in six volumes and placed in the Dean and 
Chapter Library, Carlisle. 

3. Queen's College, Oxford possesses a folio manuscript volume, 
described in Sim's Manual for the Genealogist, Topographer, Antiquary, 
&c. as " Collections for a History of Cumberland, by Hugh Todd, 

* Transactions Ciimb. and West. Antiq. and Archaso. Society, vol. vii., p. 297. 


D.D., seventeenth cent. Queen's Coll. Oxf. MS. cclxxxii." It is a 
folio volume with the press mark 19 on the back. The title page is 
as follows. — 


Imperfect Account of the County of Cumberland. 

To the Library of Queen's 

College, Oxon. 

Hugo Todd, S. Th. P. Coll. Universitatis 

Socius, nuper hujus Collegij Alumnus. 

The last two lines are in a different handwriting to the first four. It 
is an edition of John Denton's manuscript, written in the year 1687, as 
internal evidence shows, and no doubt by Todd himself. The lan- 
guage in places is decidedly fine, and the sentiments ultra Protestant : 
the writer has evidently tender reminiscences of the ale at Swain- 
son's house at Calder Bridge and of the hospitality of the squire of 
Calder Abbey. It has, I fancy, been written on loose sheets and 
afterwards bound : large blank spaces are left between the accounts 
of the various manors, and the manuscript seems to have been in- 
tended as a skeleton to be filled up at a future time. It is curious 
that its date, 1687, should be the same as that of the Scaleb}' or 
Gilpin edition. 

4. Mrs. Fawcett of Scaleby Hall possesses a small manuscript book, 

six inches high, and 3g inches broad. It is bound in vellum and red 

velvet : and contains the book plate of William Gilpin of Scaleby 

Castle, Recorder of Carlisle, who died in 1724. His autograph ''W. 

Gilpin, Aug. 20, 1687," is on the fly leaf. The title is as follows; — 


Accompt of the most considerable 

Estates and Families 


The Countv of Cumberland, 

from the Conquest unto the 

beginning of the Reign 

K. JAMES [the First]. 

On the back of the title page is this note. 

"The originall MS. is supposed to be writ by an ancestor of Mr. 
Denton of Cardew during ye time of his imprisonment (as 'tis said) 
in ye Tower, upon a contest that hapned to be betwixt him and Dr. 
Robinson then Bishop of Carliell. Tis left imperfect in many places 
with large blanks, some whereof are filled up with a different hand 
and some titles stand without any accompt of them at all : and ye 


whole is confused and without order, so that it seems to have been 
but a collection of materialls, which he intended afterwards to have 
digested into better form." 

"This copy is word for word with the originall, there being no 
Alteracons but only in the method, the places being here reduced 
under their respective Baronies which was the design as it seems of 
the Author when he had completed his collection. And from page 
346 to the end the Orthography of the MS. is precisely observed. 
These tittle additions that are made are marked thus [] ." 

The manuscript is very clearly written, in the handwriting of 
Recorder Gilpin himself : a gooil margin and the lower half of each 
page are left blank for notes, of which there are a good inany. The 
manuscript occupies 445 pages, after which comes a list of the judges 
of assize at Carlisle at the end of the 17th century, and a very imper- 
fect list of the sheriffs for Cumberland from 1204 to 1735. In the 
margins and at the end of the volume are some 200 local coats of 
arms, roughly tricked : these do not however include any not given 
in the usual books. 

I have to thank Mrs. Fawcett of Scaleby Castle for her kindness 
in entrusting this justly valued relic of Mr. Recorder Gilpin to my care 
for several months, while this edition was going through the press. 

5. The Society of Antiquaries possess a copy in folio of John Den- 
ton's MS. It is titled 

"The Antiquitys of Cumberland by Mr. Denton of Cardew, 
MS. collated with a copy formerly belonging to William 
Nicolson, Ld Ri' of Carlisle." 

The list of bishops is brought down to Bishop Lyttelton, President 
of the Society of Antiquaries, but his name and that of his predecessor 
Osbaldiston are in a different handwriting to that of the rest of the 
manuscript thus proving this manuscript to have been written 
while Fleming was bishop of Carlisle, 1734 to 1747. I think the 
names of Bishops Osbaldiston and Lyttelton have been added, and 
the collation with Bishop Nicolson's copy made by Bishop Lyttel- 
ton himself, and that he probably gave this copy to the Society 
of Antiquaries. It is clear that Bishop Nicolson's copy, with which 
the S.A. copy has been collated, is the one now belonging to the 
Dean and Chapter of Carlisle. 

6. Mr. Browne of Tallentire Hall, Cockermouth, possesses a small 
book bound in vellum, the leaves of which are 7 inches by 5^. This 
book contains a copy of the John Denton's history of Cumberland, 
and a copy of Dr. Todd's history of Carlisle, together with one or 
two documents referring to Highhead Castle and the Richmonds, and 


to the rights of the tenants of the Forest of Inglewood. It formerly 
belonged, as shewn by his autograph on the first page, to Josiah Relph 
the poet curate of Sebergham : and it contains a list of his linen, 
made probably on his death in 1743. 

7. The Editor possesses a copy of the John Denton's MS., in the 
inside of which is written 

"John Fawcett from the late Sir. Jos. D. A. Gilpin." 
It is a copy from the Scaleby manuscript with the spelling moder- 
nised and with footnotes and additions bringing it down to 1749, in 
which year internal evidence shows this copy to have been made : 
it is in the handwriting of William Milbourne, of Lincoln's Inn and 
Armathwaite Castle, Cumberland, as proved by a comparison with 
his handwriting in certain Elzevirs bearing his book plates, auto- 
graph and notes, in possession of the editor: he is known to have 
edited, in manuscript, a copy of the John Denton manuscript (see 
Lysons' Cumberland, p. 20). The following note is on the fly leaf. 

"The original MS. is supposed to have been writ by one Mr. 
Denton of the family of Cardew, during his imprisonment in the 
Tower (as it is said), upon a contest that happened between him and 
Dr. Robinson, then Bishop of Carlisle, and is brought down by Mr. 
Denton to the year 1610." 

"William Gilpin, Esq., of Scaleby Castle (from whose copy this 
was taken), says that the original is left imperfect in many places 
with large blanks and the whole confused and without order, so that 
it seemed to have been only a collection of materials, which he in- 
tended afterwards to have disposed into better form." 

" Mr. Gilpin first undertook to place the several greater baronies 
in order, and to reduce the places under their several baronies. He 
has likewise made some usefull additions and annotations, and con- 
tinued the pedigrees of several families down to the year 16S7. And 
among many copies I have seen his is mucli the best." 

The manuscript is titled 

" An Account 

Of the most considerable Estates 

and Families 

in the County of Cumberland, 

since the Conquest till the year 1610." 

Mr. Milbourne has added an appendix containing a collection of deeds 
charters, &c. 

For the purposes of this publication, the Editor has 
relied upon Nos. 4 and 7, which are cited in the footnotes 


as the Gilpin or Scaleby MS. and tlie Milbourne MS. 
respectively : footnotes signed Gilpin are in both MSS. 
and are by Recorder Gilpin : those signed Milbourne are 
in the later MS. only, and are additions by Recorder 
Milbourne. The transcribers of Nos. 5 and 6, have not 
known of the existence of the Gilpin or Scaleby MS. and 
have adhered to the arrangement of the older manuscripts. 
Of the Thomas Denton MS. history of Cumberland, no 
copy is known to exist, unless one be in the muniment 
room in Lowther Castle : Messrs. Lysons in their history 
of Cumberland, p. 2, positively state that it was lent to them, 
by the Earl of Lonsdale. They state that it was " written 
in the years 1687 and 1688 by Thomas Denton Esq., 
barrister-at-law, recorder of Carlisle, and lord of the 
manor of Warnell Hall in Sebergham." But in those 
years John Aglionby was recorder of Carlisle, and William 
Gilpin deputy recorder,* and in 1687 Mr. Deputy Recorder 
William Gilpin rearranged John Denton's MS. history of 
Cumberland and produced No. 4, the Gilpin or Scaleby 
Denton MS. Thomas Denton had been recorder of Car- 
lisle prior to Aglionby, but had retired in 1679. t Thomas 
Denton died in 1695 ; his portrait and that of his wife 
Letitia Vachell are in the Town Hall at Carlisle. The 
precise account given by Messrs. Lysons of the MS. history 
of Cumberland, which they attribute to Thomas Denton, 
forbids the conjecture that they have accidentally substi- 
tuted Mr. Recorder Denton for Mr. Recorder Aglionby, but 
it is a curious coincidence that in 1687, Mr. Ex-Recorder 
Denton, and Mr. Deputy Recorder Aglionby, and Dr. Todd 
{ante No. 3), should have all compiled histories of Cum- 
berland based on that of John Denton.

An Account 



In the County of Cumberland, since the Conquest 

TILL THE year i6io. 

'^I^HAT country or county now called Cumberland is on 

*^ the east of the same divided from Fourness, a part of 

Lancaster, by the river of Dudden (which falleth into the 

Irish ocean at Milium Castle), ascending by the banks of 

the river up to Uffay or Woolfhay Park to Blackball, and 

so to the Shire Stones upon the mountain Wrynose at the 

head of Dudden where it first meeteth with the county of 

Westmorland at Little Langdale in the fells, so, leaving 

Great Langdale and Gresmyre on the east, it bordereth 

upon the same all the way from Langdale unto Dunnimail 

or Dunmail-raise (a great heap of stones at the head of 

Wythburne cast together in antient time, either by King 

Dunmail sometime King or Lord of that country, as a 

mark of the utmost bounder of his kingdom, or by some 

other in remembrance of his name, for some memorable 

act by him done there or some victory against him). And 

from thence on the back side of Helvelon or Hell Belyn 

by the head of Glenkrhodden Beck unto the head of Glen- 

kwen Beck, and so by Glenkwen Beck unto UUeswater (a 

great lake) and thence by the river Aymot, (which runneth 

forth of UUeswater at Powley Stank), descending by 

Dacre Castle, Penrith, and Carleton, till it be received of 

the great river Eden. And thence by Eden unto the foot 


of Blenkarn Beck.* And thence by the said little Beck it 
is severed from Westmorland to where that Beck springs 
out of the fells. It joineth again with Westmorland for 
the space of five or six miles alongst the mountains. Then 
meeting with a little corner of Yorkshire, it is bounded 
by the same unto the head of the river Tees (which there 
divideth Yorkshire from the county Palatine of Durham). 
And from thence unto Kelloplaw Hill by the county of 
Durham. From Kelloplaw Hill to the head of Alneburne, 
it adjoineth to the county of Northumberland, which burn 
or little river untill Kirkhaugh (where it is received of the 
great river Tine) divides the two counties, which in like 
manner on the other side of Tine are kept asunder by 
another little rill falling into Tine from the east side of the 
mountains in Geltsdale Forest. And from the head of that 
little water unto the head of Hartley Burn, and thence along 
the north-east side of Geltsdale Forest, and on Burn Tippel 
Moor, (a great Heath and Waste), the said two counties of 
Cumberland and Northumberland meet again and are not 
severed whilstt a little beck called Fowtross part them, 
which falling unto the water of Irthing loseth its name, 
and then Irthing divides them ascending the same, until it 
receive a lesser water named Troutbeck, which in like sort 
falls in between them and then they concur again at the 
Horsehead, Gelecrag, and Christenbury Crag unto Lamy- 
ford, where Cumberland makes a narrow point northward. 
There the river Lyddalt on the north side runs down 

* Denton means the beck now marked on the Ordnance Map as the " Crow- 
dundle," not that marked " Blenkarn " : bothbecksarenearthevillag-e of Blenkarn 
and might easily be confused. The boundary runs up the Crowdundle to its head : 
thence to the head of Tees, and down Tees to the Crookburn Beck (sic in 
Ordnance Map), and upthat beck to Killhope Law, (the Kelloplaw Hill of Denton). 
Denton is in error in saying that Cumberland meets with a little corner of York- 
shire : the two counties do not actually meet. Burn and Nicolson, in their history 
ot Cumberland, repeat Denton's error in their text, but show the position of 
Yorkshire correctly in their map. The Glenkwen Beck appears on the Ordnance 
Map as the Glencoin : in Burn and Nicolson as the Glencune. Editor. 

t " Whilst " is in the manuscripts, but " until " is clearly meant. Editor. 

J The Kershope Burn is the boundary from Lamyford, (given on Ordnance Map 
as Scotch Knowe), to Kershope Foot, and then, and not till then, Liddell comes in 
as described by Denton. Burn and Nicolso7i again follow Denton's error in their 
text, but give the boundary correctly in their map. Editor. 


between Scotland and Cumberland, until Canonby Holme 
where the river Eske entertains it (and beareth* Lyddall 
its name) at the mote. Then ascending up Eske towards 
Canonby it fetcheth in Kirkanders Holmes and there it is 
parted from Scotland by a bank of earth and a ditch, that 
reacheth from the side of Eske to Sark (a little Scottish 
brook) which falling into Eske, and with Eske so into the 
river of Eden aforementioned, are presently together in 
one channel carried together to the Irish Sea as the last 
bounder between them. From the foot of Eden, Cumber- 
land, on the west side all along the coast bending 
southwards Hke a bow, is environed by the Irish Sea, until 
the foot of the river Dudden, at Milium Castle aforesaid. 
Where it is broadest, that is from the Irish Sea on the 
west to Kelloplaw Hill, being there extended into a point 
on the east, it is between thirty-five and forty miles over, 
and from Lamyford in the north to Milium Castle in the 
south is scant fifty-five miles in length. t 

* The manuscripts both read " beareth Lyddall its name," which probably should 
be " bereaveth Lyddall of its name " : the conjoined streams are called Esk. The 
boundary runs down Esk a little way, (not up it, as Denton says), and then goes 
across to the Sark, by the bank of earth and ditch mentioned by Denton, and 
known as "the Scotch Dyke," for which see Burn and Nicolson, vol. i., xvi. vol. 
ii. 515. Editor. 

f Forty-tive and seventy-two are, according to the Ordnance Map, nearer the 
figures. Editor. 



The Barony of King William the Conqueror,* about 
Egremont. the latter end of his reign after he had 

taken the county of Cumberland from 
Gospatrick, to whom he had first given it, and banished 
the Saxons, and quieted the rebellions there raised, and 
outlawed the inhabitants (the whole north parts from 
York northward being in those journeys wasted with fire 
and sword), gave the counties of Cumberland and West- 
morland to Ranulph or Randolph de Meschines, sisters 
son to Hugh Lupus, Earl of Chester, and left him men 
to maintain to defend the country from all hostility which 
might trouble the peace of the same, either by tumult of 
the inhabitants that were left or foreign invasion. 

Randolph de Meschines being quietly possessed of every 
part of Cumberland, presently surveyed the whole country, 
and gave all the frontiers bordering on Scotland, on 
Northumberland and along the sea coasts, to his friends 
and followers, retaining still to himself the middle part 
between the east and west mountains, a goodly great forest 
full of woods, red and fallow deer, wild swine and all 
manner of wild beasts, called the forest of Englewood, 
which was sixteen miles long, and ten broad, and lieth 
between the rivers Shawk and Eden, extended in length 
from Carlisle to Penrith.

Meschines the great Barony of Coupland, or Kopeland, 
which lies between the rivers Dudden and Darwent and 
the sea. 

And so much of the same as lyeth between the rivers 
Cocker and Darwent the said WiUiam granted over to one 
Waldeof, the son of Gospatrick, Earl of Dunbar, in Scot- 
land, together with five towns about Cockar, that is to say, 
Brigham, Eaglesfield, Dean with Branthwait, Crayksothen 
and Clifton, with the hamlets thereof Little Clifton and 
Stainburn. This Waldeof was Lord of Allerdale beneath 
Darwent. And to Ketell, the son of Eldred, the son of 
Ivor Tailbois, Baron of Kendal, were given Kelton, Salter, 

The mannor of Beckermet, Frisington, Rotington, Wed- 
dekar, and Arloghden to Fleming. 

Kirkby Begohe to the Abbey of York. 
Mulcaster to the Pennington's Ancestors

Milium to Godard Boyville. 

Saunton, Bolton, Gosforth, and Haile to Thomas 
Multon, of Gilsland. 
Egremont. The said Lord William de Meschines 
seated himself at Egremont, where he built a castle upon a 
sharp topped hill, and there upon called the same Egre — 
mont, and all such lands as he or his successors lords of 
Kopeland, granted to any knight or freeholder within the 
barony of Kopeland they bound the same to be held of that 
castle of Egremont, and caused the name of the barony to 
be changed from Kopeland, and to be called the barony of 
Egremont, which name it retaineth to this day. 

This William left no issue at his death but a daughter, 
who was married to Robert Romly, of Skipton in Craven, 

* Ivo de Tailbois had no other issue, but a daughter Lucia, who married, first, 
Roger de Romara, by whom she had an only son William : second, Ranulph de 
Meschines, see W. Jackson, F.S.A., The Curioeiis uf IVorkington Halt. Ibid, 
vol. v., p. 1S2. Also The Pipe Rolls, Cumberland, ^Westmorland, and Durham, pp. 
xvi.,-xviii. EDITOR. 


by whom he had issue, a daughter named Alice, whom the 
said Robert Romly gave in marriage to WilHam Romly, 
Earl of Murray, in Scotland, the son of Duncan, by which 
marriage the said William FitzDuncan, became lord both 
of Skipton and Egremont, in the right of his wife being 
sole heir of Skipton by her father, and of Egremont by 
her mother the Lord Meschines' daughter. 

William FitzDuncan had issue by the said Alice, a son 
called William, who dyed an infant, and three daughters 
co-heirs. The oldest named Sybill or Cicely, was married 
to William le Gros, Earl of Aumarle, and had issue only 
a daughter, named Hawise, who was married to three 
husbands successively, to William de Mandevill Earl of 
Essex ; to Baldwain Beton ; and to William de Fortibus, 
to whom the said Hawise bore a son called William de 
Fortibus, who had issue the third William de Fortibus, 
who had issue Aveline an only daughter and heir (who 
was married to Edmond Croutchback, King Edw: ist 
brother) and dying without any children, the third part of 
William FitzDuncan's land (which was Skipton in Craven), 
came to the King's hand, and, by King Edward 2nd, was 
granted to Robert Clifford in exchange of the Clifford's 
lands in the county of Monmouth, whose posterity, now 
Earls of Cumberland, enjoy the same. 

Annabil the second daughter of William FitzDuncan, 
had for her part of the inheritance this barony of Egremont 
and took to husband Reginald Lucy,* by whom she had 
issue, Richard de Lucy, who had issue, two daughters 
Annabel Lucy and Alice Lucy. 

Dame Alice Romley, the third daughter and co-heir of 
William FitzDuncan was married by King Henry 2nd, 
unto Gilbert Pipperd ;t and after by the Queen unto Robert 
Courtney, but had no issue of her body ; wherefore her part 

* This Reginald de Lucy was Captain of Nottingham, An. 21, H. 2. (G) 
t Gilbert Pippard was justice itinerant into Wiltshire, An. 23, H. 2. (G) 


of her father's inheritance (which was ye liberty of Cocker- 
mouth, Aspatrick, and the barony of Egremont below the 
river Darwent), was divided between the Earl of Alber- 
marle and Richard de Lucy, her sister's children, and so 
continued divided until the eldest sister's issue extinguished 
by the death of Avelina aforesaid, daughter to the last 
William de Fortibus. After whose death all the Romley's 
lands above Darwent and beneath, both the barony of 
Egremont and Allerdale, came wholly to the heirs of 
Reginald Lucy, and of Annabel Romley his wife, second 
daughter to the said William FitzDuncan. 

Annabel Lucy (one of the daughters and co-heirs of 
Richard de Lucy, son to Reginald de Lucy and Annabel 
Romley his wife, the daughter of William FitzDuncan), 
for her moiety enjoyed the barony of Egremont, (all saving 
Lowes Water) which was more by a twentieth part than 
the residue which was enjoyed by her sister Lucy. Anna- 
bel was married to Thomas Multon, by whom she had 
Lambert de Multon, who had issue Thomas de Multon, 
whose son John de Multon, left the barony of Egremont to 
his three daughters and heirs, Elizabeth (married to 
Haverington, of Haverington), Joan (married to Robert 
FitzWalter), and Margaret (who was married to the Lord 
Thomas Lucy). At which time this barony was broken 
into parts, which from the conquest had continued intire, 
except Lowes Water, and the lands between Cockar and 
Darwent, and the five towns granted to Waldeof, as afore- 
said. But now of late it is reunited by the Earls of 
Northumberland, who are Lords thereof, by gift and pur- 
chase but not by Discent from any of the co-heirs* 

Within this great barony of Copeland, now called Egre- 
mont, are diverse knight's fees which are mannors of

barony) is the first, and of greatest liberties ; containing also 
in itself divers manors which are holden of Milium, (as 
Milium is of Egremont) immediately, with some difference 
of service. 

This mannor reached from the river of Dudden unto 
Eske, ten long miles in length, and from the west sea, up 
into the mountains above the manor of Thwaits about six 
miles in breadth, in form triangular. It is most inhabited

Upon the death of Joceline the eleventh Farl of Northumberland without issue

was first married to Earl of Ogle, eldest son and heir to Duke of New- 
castle, but he dying without issue by her ; she was afterwards married to Charles 
Duke of Somerset, who now enjoys the estate of Northumberland, against whom

the rest is forest ground, hills, and great mountains, best 
fitting for sheep pasture. 

Milium Castle, the antient seat and capital mansion of 
this manor, is placed at the foot of the river Dudden, and 
through length of time threatens ruin. Howbeit the lords 
thereof make it still their dwelling place and abode, holding 
themselves content, that the old manner of strong building 
there, with the goodly demesns and commodities which 
both land and sea afford them, and the stately parks full 
of huge oaks and timber woods and fallow deer, do better 
witness their antient and present greatness and worth, 
than the painted vanities of our times do grace our new 

This great mannor in the time of King Henry i^* was 

given by William Meschines, Lord of Egremont, to - 

de Boyvill, father to Godard de Boyvill, (named in antient 
evidences Godardus Dapifer) who being of Milium did give 
unto the abbot and monks of Fourness a carcucate of land 
there with the appurtenances called yet to this day Monk 
Force, which Arthur the son of Godard confirmed unto 
the abbey, and after him in like sort his son and heir 
Henry the son of Arthur, reserving only the harts and 
hinds, wild boars and their kinds, and all aieries of hawks. 

But whatsoever the Lord of Egremont William Meschines 
reserved upon the first grant to the Boyvills, whether 
demesn or forest liberties, Dame Cicely Romley, (one of 
the co-heirs of William FitzDuncan), Countess of Albe- 
marle, to whose purparty this Milium was allotted by 
partition, gave and fully confirmed the same to the said 
Arthur FitzGodard, and to Henry his son and their heirs 
by her charter yet extant, under seal, bounding the same 
thus " Dedi et Concessi Henrico filio Arthuri et Heredibus jus 
Hereditatis viz : totam terram et totum feodum inter Esk et 
Dodden cum pertinentiis &c. ; and Dame Hawise her sole 
daughter and heir, then the wife of William de Mande- 
vil, advised her husband to confirm it. 


And for a recognition of the grant made to the Boyvills, 
Arthur and Henry his son by Dame Cicely the Countess, 
they paid to King Henry 2nd for a postfine one hundred 
pounds and five couple of hounds, the records terming 
them decern fugatorcs . 

An old tradition makes these Boyvills to have been very 
near of kin to the Lords of Egremont, and gives us an 
account of the occasion upon which Milium was transferred 
to the said Boyvills, which is said to be thus : The baron 
of Egremont being taken prisoner beyond the seas by the 
infidels, could not be redeemed without a great ransom, 
and being for England entered his brother or kinsman for 
his surety, promising with all possible speed to send him 
money to set him free ; but upon his return home to Egre- 
mont, he changed his mind and most unnaturally and 
unthankfuUy suffered his brother to lye in prison, in great 
duress and extremity untill the hair of his head was grown 
to an unusual length, like to a woman's hair. The Pagans 
being out of hopes of the ransom, in great rage most 
cruelly hanged up their pledge, binding the long hair of his 
head to a beam in the prison, and tied his hands so behind 
him that he could not reach to the top, where the knot 
was fastened, to loose himself. During his imprisonment 
the Paynim's daughter became enamoured of him, and 
sought all good means for his deliverance but could not 
enlarge him ; she understanding of this last cruelty, by 
means made to his keeper entered the prison, and taking 
her knife to cut the hair, being hastened, she cut the skin 
of his head so as with the weight of his body, he rent 
away the rest, and fell to the earth half dead ; but she 
presently took him up, causing surgeons to attend him 
secretly till he recovered his former health, beauty, and 
strength, and so entreated her father for him that he set 
him at liberty. Then desirous to revenge his brother's 
ingratitude he got leave to depart to his country, and took 
home with him the hatterell of his hair rent off as afore- 


said, and a bugle-horn which he commonly used to carry 
about him when he was in England, where he shortly 
arrived and coming towards Egremont Castle about noon- 
tide of the day, when his brother was at dinner, he blew 
his bugle-horn which (says the tradition) his brother the 
baron presently acknowledged, and thereby conjectured his 
brother's return, and then sending his friends and servants 
to learn his brother's mind to him, and how he had 
escaped, they brought back the report of all the miserable 
torment which he had endured for his unfaithful brother 
the baron, which so astonished the baron, (half dead before 
with the shameful remembrance of his own disloyalty and 
breach of promise) that he abandoned all company and 
would not look on his brother, till his just wrath was 
pacified by diligent entreaty of their friends, and to be sure 
of his brother's future kindness, he gave the lordship of 
Milium to him and his heirs for ever. Whereupon the 
first lords of Milium gave for their arms the horn and the 

But whatever the occasion of the grant was, the Boy- 
vills were from the place called de Milium, and have 
antiently held the same with great liberties, and had jura 
regalia there ; John Huddleston did prescribe thereto in 
the twentieth year of King Edw. i^' and was allowed before 
Hugh de Cressingham in the pleas of Quo Warranto holden 
for the king. 

The Boyvilles held the same in their issue made from 
the time of King Henry i"' untill the reign of K. H. 3"^^

of Milium to the Abbey of St. Marie's of York, to which 
Abbey his wife Matilda also gave Anderset, now Agnes 

Arthur de Milium son of Godard third Lord of Milium, 
confirmed his father's grants of Monk Force, and of the 
parishes to the Abbeys of York and Fourness, and granted 
to Fourness the services of Kirksanton in Milium, which 
Robert de Boyvill his cousin german then held of him, 
and presently after did mortgage the same to the Abbot of 
Fourness till he returned from the Holy Land. 

Henry the son of Arthur the son of Godard, fourth 
Lord of Milium, confirmed his ancestors grants, and en- 
feoffed Radulph Corbett and his heirs of the manor of 
Brettaby,* with the appurtenances in Milium. He also 
gave Raisthwaite in Dunnersdale, to one Orme the son 
of Dolphin. And Leakley to Henry FitzWilliam in frank 
marriage with his daughter Goynhild Boyvill, with shields 
for her cattle, and common of pasture in Croch-beeghe, 
which Goynhild afterwards (being a widow) gave to the 
Abbey of Holm Cultram. And William de Milium (the son 
of Henry de Milium, the son of Arthur de Milium), brother 
of the said Goynhild did after confirm the same, and 
afterwards John Huddleston and Joan his wife, sole 
daughter of Adam de Milium, son and heir of the said 
Henry, confirmed Leakley and the liberties aforesaid (so 
granted by Goynhild), unto the abbot and convent of Holm 
Cultram and his successors. 

The said Henry FitzArthur gave other lands in Leakley 
(now called Seaton), unto the nuns of Leakley or Seaton, 
which of late were granted unto Sir Hugh Askew, Knt., 
when the nunnery was suppressed by Hen. 8*. But 
Seaton is now the inheritance of John Pennington gentle-

* I do not find this place in the Ordnance Map, but conjecture that it is repre- 
sented by Lord Muncaster's manor of Birliby. Editor. 


Arthur to Goynhild his daughter approves the same, for 
therein is excepted as follows : " Excepta Terra in LeakUy 
quam dedi Sanctis Monialibus servientibus Deo et SandcB 
MaricB in Leckleya.^' It takes the name of Seaton from 
the sea, for that it stands nigh the same. And the rest of 
Leakley or Seaton, formerly given to the Abbey of Holm 
Cultram as aforesaid, is now also part of the possessions 
of the late nuns of Seaton. 

All the residue of the fees of Milium were thus granted 
by the Boyvills, Lords of Milium, to their kinsmen or 
friends, or with their daughters, or sisters in marriage, 
and accordingly by the Huddlestons and their heirs, some 
as manners, and some as lesser freeholds, as, namely, 
Ulfhay, Thwaits, Dalegarth, and Waybergthwaite, and 
some in mortmain, as Leakley and Kirksanton. All which 
places gave sirnames to the posterity of the feoffees, as 
Thwaits of Thwaits, Wayberthwaite of Waybergthwaite, 
and the rest, whereof some do yet remain, and some names 
are worn out but antient records do report and remember 

Ulfhay. Ulfhay was granted to one Ulff, the son of 
Evard, whose posterity enjoyed it till the time of K. Hen. 
3'''>. Ulff had issue, Ailfward, and Retell. Ailfward paid to 
K. Hen. 2"*^ in the 27th year of his reign, twenty marks for 
a fine assessed upon him for an attaint. Retell had diverse 
sons, Bennett, William, and Michael. Bennett lived in R. 
John's time, and had a son named Alan. But now the 
land is reduced to demesne again, and Mr. Huddleston, 
the pi'esent Lord of Milium, and diverse of his ancestors 
have made there a park enclosed for deer, which yet to 
this day is called Uffhay Park. 

Thwaites. Thence along down the river of Dudden 
stands the manor of Thwaites, between the river and the 
mountains, now the antient seat of Joseph Thwaites of 
Ulnerigg Esq., and the place being a stony mountainous 
country is not everywhere altogether fit for tillage meadow 


and pasture. But in several parts and pieces as they are 
marked by nature, differing in form and quality of soil or 
otherwise by the inhabitants inclosed from the barren 
wastes of the fells, such pieces of land are now and were 
of old called Thwaites in most places of the shire, some- 
times with addition of their quality, as Brackenthwaite 
of fearns, Sivithwaite of rushes, Stonythwaite of stones, 
Brenthwaite of its steepness, Brunthwaite of burning 
with the sun, Redthwaite of the colour of the soil, Over- 
thwaite of higher lying, Moorthwait of the heath, Sourth- 
waite of the wet soil, Langthwaite of the form of lying, 
Micklethwaite of the quantity, and diverse others. 

This manor being an antient fee, holden of the Lord of 
Milium, for a dowry was by Ellen the wife of John 
Boyvill and Michael de Corney, passed by fine levyed 35 
Hen. 3'^<J., of land in Thwaites. And John Huddleston 
impleaded William the son of John Thwaites, for 200 acres 
of pasture there An. 16 Edw. 1=='. 

The gentlemen of this family do bear for their arms a 
cross argent fretty gules in a field . . . which seems 
to be derived from the Huddleston's coat of whom they 
hold the manor of Thwaits. 

Whicham. At the west end of Donersdale, near the fell 
and foranenst Milium, stands Whitcham* or Wicheham 
alias Whittingham which all or the most part thereof was 
another fee holden of Milium, and as I take it the place 
took the name of one Wyche, the first feoffee of the same. 
He lived about the time of K. Hen. i''*. Two of his sons, 
William FitzWych and Godfrey, were witnesses to a 
mortgage of Kirksanton, in the time of Hen. 2°''. But the 
issue general brought their lands into other families about 
the time of King Hen. 3'^'^. For then one Radulph de 
Bethom had the land, and anno 6 Edw. 1=^' he granted 
estovers to John, parson of Whitcham, in his woods there. 

* Whitcham belonged to the family of Latus. Sir D. F's MS. 

l6 EGREMONT. — [mILLUM] . 

And one Robert the son of Radulph de Bethom, warranted 

lands in Selcroft and Saterton, in Milium, g Edw. i^'. But 

the manors of Selcroft and Whitcham, were in another 

family 9 Edw. 2"*^., as appears by a fine thereof levied 

between William Corbett and Alicia his wife querentes, and 

John de Corney deft. 

Whitbeck. Some deal westward under the mountains 

stands the church or chapel of Whitbeck, which William 

Morthing, Lord of Whitbeck, gave by fine levied to the 

prior and convent of Coning-Seai in the 45th year of Hen. 

These Morthings and Corbets were antiently seated in 
Milium. I have seen of their names in writings and 
evidences made in the time of K. Hen., or Edw. 2°"^., and 
to have been men of good worth and quality there, as 
namely one William de Morthing, and John de Morthing, 
William Corbet, and Radulph Corbet. Diverse of the 
Corbets seated themselves in Scotland, in those famous 
wars of K. Edw. i^'., where their posterity do remain to 
this day. 

BooTLE. Next unto Whitbeck, in the Common High 
Street, more toward the west is Butle, where of old stood 
a mansion of the Couplands. They bear for arms. Or, a 
bend sable, a canton and two barrs gules. I have seen a 
register of their descent, namely : 

Sir Richard Cowpland, Knt. 

Alane Cowpland, son of Sir Richard. 

Richard Cowpland, son of Alan, who 
died seised of Buile, 26 Edw. i^'. 

John Cowpland, son of Richard. 

Richard Cowpland, son of John. 
They continued in the issue male till the time of K. Rich. 
2, and K. Hen. 4, and now their lands are transferred into 
other famines. 

CoRNEY. The manor of Corney lyes next Butle in 
Milium, more toward the north-east under the mountains 


upon the top of lesser hills. Corney is called also Cornhow, 
and Corno. Of this place, the posterity of Michael le 
Falconer and himself took the sirname of Corney, for they 
had a feoffment thereof antiently in the time of K. John, 
and K. Hen. 3. 

Seaton. And nearer the sea westward is seated the nun- 
nery of Seaton, of the endowment of the antient Lords of 
Milium confirmed by the barons of the seignory of Egre- 
mont to the nuns there : which did remain until by the late 
suppression of abbeys it came to the Crown. Hen. 8* 
gave the scite and lands there unto his servant Sir Hugh 
Askew, and his heirs. This knight descended from one 
Thurston de Bosco, who lived in the days of King John, 
and had a feoffment from the Lords of Kirksanton of a 
place then called the Aikskeugh or Oakwood, and from a 
poor estate was raised to great honour and preferment by 
his service to K. Hen. S^^ in his house ordinary, and in 
the field at the seige of Bullen and wars of France. But 
it is now become the lands of the Penningtons. 

To John Huddleston who married Johan, the daughter 
and heir of Adam de Milium, and was in her right Lord 
of Milium, K. Henry the 3rd granted, in the 35th year 
of his reign, liberty to keep a fair and market in Milium. 

MuLCASTER. The next fee unto Milium, holden im- 
mediately of the barony of Egremont, is Mulcaster, seated 
on the north side of the seignory of Milium. The manor 
is bounded between the river Eske and a little rill or beck 
called Mite.* It is in form a long ridge or rising ground of 
hills from the foot of Eske, extended along between those 
rivers unto the great and vast mountains belonging to 
Egremont in Eskdale, Wastdale, and Mitredale. There 
are not many under fees belonging to this mannor. 

The place is now corruptly named Moncaster, howbeit 

* The parish of Muncaster or Mulcaster includes the manor of that name, 
which is without Milium, and the manor of Birkby (Brettaby ante, p. 13) which 
is within. Editor. 


the right name is Mulcastre or Meol-castre, of an old 
castle there towards the water side near unto Eskmeal, 
which was the antient dwelling place of the Penningtons, 
and is yet visible in the ruins, they call it the Old Walls ;* 
(for their present mansion house is of later erection, made 
by some of them), much better and more conveniently set 
for state and avoidance of the air, and sharp distempers 
from the sea). It was called the Meolcastre or Mulecastre, 
from the meal on which it antiently stood, and it is accor- 
dingly written Mulecastre and Mealcastre, in all their old 
evidences and records. Eskmeal (whereon the antient 
castle stood), is a plain low dry ground at the foot of Esk, 
between the mountains and the sea, which sort of grounds 
lying under the mountains and promontories into or at the 
sea, are commonly called mules, or metis, as it were the 
entrance or mouth from the sea into a river or such like 
place, as this meal of Esk, Kirksanton meil, Cartmeil, 
Mealholm, the Mule of Gallowav, and Milium itself, and 
many other such like. 

The estate is now in the possession of Joseph Penning- 
ton Esq., whose ancestors have enjoyed the same ever 
since the Conquest, sometimes collaterally but for the 
most part lineally descending by their issue male to this 
time. They were for the most part knights successively, 
and men of great valour in the king's services, on the 
borders and marches, and in other expeditions where it 
pleased the king to command them. They took their 
name from Pennington in Lancashire, and though this 
mannor (of Mulcasterl, was always theirs as aforesaid, 
yet some have greatly mistaken the same to have been

the Mulcasters are descended from one David de Mul- 
castre the son of Benedict Pennington who lived in King 
John's time. He had two sons John and Adam, called 
both de Mulcaster, and so their posterity take their sir- 
name of the place where their first ancestor David died.* 

Ravenglass. Ravenglass, now a village, antiently a 
green of ferns, (corruptly called of two Irish words Rainigh 
ferns and Glass green), was antiently another fee of Egre- 
mont. It stands at the foot of Esk, where, by King John's 
grant made to Richard Lucy, then Lord of Egremont, dated 
the tenth year of that king's reign, was kept a market and a 
fair yearly in right of the haven there by the Lords of 
Egremont, as Lords paramount, and the same Richard 
Lucy, in the same year, confirmed by fine levied to the 
mesne Lords and terrtenants all the land and fee of Raven- 
glass, namely to Alan Pennington, WiUiam FitzHugh, 
and Roger FitzEdward, to hold the same of the said 
William and his heirs, and gave them moreover estovers 
to make their fishgarths in the river Esk, which is con- 
tinued to this day. The Penningtons have long enjoyed 
the mannor and other lands there now adjoyning. 

Carleton. Between Mite and the river Irt, at the sea 
stands Carleton, and on the other side of Irt, Dregg another 
fee of Egremont, now the Penningtons' land. Carleton was 
first villa rusticata, a town of husbandry and then called 
Karlston, then as now inhabited by Carls {i.e., husbandmen) 
but afterwards made a demesne.

Dregg. Dregg on the other side of Irt, had great sort of 
oaks in the elder times, and thereof the Scots and inhabi- 
tants (at and before the Conquest), called the mannor Dregg 
of Derig or Dergh, which is oak in the Scottish or Irish 
language. And much old wood beaten down with the wind 
from the sea is yet digged up out of the mosses and wet 
grounds there, as in diverse other places in the country. 
And in Scotland there are several places which got their 
names from Derigg, oaks; as Glendergh, and some others in 
Cumberland as Dundragh. And in our English, Aikton, 
Aikhead, Aikskeugh, &c. 

In King Henry 2"^^, time the Estutevilles were possessed 
of this mannor. The whole patrimoney descended by a 
daughter to the Lord Baldwin Wake, Baron of Liddal, 
when Henry 3""^ reigned, of, which Baldwin, William the 
son of Thomas de Greystock, and the Lady Adingham in 
Fourness, in the tenth year of Ed. i^'., held a knight's fee 
between them in Dregg. And in the 29th Ed. 1°'., the 
Abbot of Calder, Patrick Culwen, and the Lady Margaret 
Multon, held Dregg of John de Graystock, and of John the 
son of Robert Harrington, and they over of John Wake. 

Irton. a little above Carleton, on the south side of Irt, 
stands the mannor and town of Irton and Irtondale, which 
are so named of the river Irt. The antient family of the 
Irtons took their first sirname of this town and seat of 
Irton, which yet continues in their name and blood to this 
day. One of their younger sons named Radulph, by his 
painful diligence in study and learning became the 8th 
Bishop of Carlisle, in the beginning of K. Ed. i". reign. 

Above Irton, in the fells and mountains, lies a waste 
forest ground full of red deer, which was called the 
Wastdale, now Wasdale, the inheritance of the Earl of 
Northumberland: and before, the Lucys' lands, being a 
parcel of their third part of the Barony of Egremont, which 
Thomas Lucy got with his wife Margaret, one of the 
daughters and co-heirs of John Multon, last of that name 
Baron of Egremont. 


GosFORD. Above Dregg lies the parish manner and town 
of Gosford whereof the Gosfords an antient family in those 
parts took their sirname. Robert Gosford the last of their 
house, left his lands to be divided amongst five co-heirs. 
I. Mariotte, the wife of Adam Caddy, eldest daughter and 
co-heir of Robert Gosford. 2. Isabel, the wife of Henry 
Huscock, his second daughter. 3. Johan, the wife of 
John Garth, his third daughter. 4. Ellen, the wife of 
William Kirkby, his fourth daughter. And 5. John Mul- 
ton, the son of Agnes Estholme the fifth daughter and 
co-heir of Robert Gosford. In the second year of K. Ed. 
3'^'*., Sarah the widow of Robert Leyburn held Caddy's 
part, John Penyston Kirkby's part, and the said John 
Multon the residue. But now Pennington, Kirkby, and 
Sennus of Seaskall, hold it. 

Hale. Hale in Hen. 3rd's time was the land of Alex- 
ander de Hale ; Agnes and Constance his daughters held 
it 23 Ed. i"., of Thomas Multon of Gilsland, but in Edw. 
2^^. time she is named Christian in John Multon's office. 
The Ponsonbys got Agnes's part, and in Rich. 2^^. time 
William Beauchamp, Robert Harrington or Everington, 
Richard Murthing, and the heir of John Stanley the other 
part. But now Ponsonby holds it wholly. 

Towards the sea coast stands Seaskall Hall, now the 
mansion house of John Sennos, which is so called of this 
word Skale, drawn from the latin Scalinga ad mare a Scale 
or Skeele, for cattle and sheepcot at ye sea. 

Sellowfield. And near it Sellowfield or Sea-low-field 
seated upon the brook that falls from the mountains by 
Calder Abbey. 

Ponsonby. Upon the same brook stands Ponsonby, 
whereof that race of gentlemen the Ponsonbies took their 
name, some of whom yet remain. I read of Alexander the 
son of Richard Ponsonby, who lived about the time of 
Edw. 2"''., and William in Edw. s'''^., and Robert in Rich. 
2"*^. But the said Ponson of whom the place took name, 


lived in K. Stephen and Hen. I'K, time. His son John the 
son of Ponson was fined in Hen. 2""^., time because he 
wanted his pledge. It it now the lands of ..... 

Saunton. Saunton was in Hen. 3'''^. time the in- 
heritance of one Alane de Copeland, his capital mansion 
house was in the township of Botle (or Butle), where he 
held lands, (and in Seaton) of the Lord of Milium. And his 
twenty pound lands in Santon, Irton, and Bolton, he held 
of Thomas Multon of Gilsland, who held over of the Lord 
of Egremont. After Alane and Richard his son succeeded 
Alane, John and Richard. And in the 22nd year of Rich. 
2"'^., one Alane son to Richard Copeland held lands there 
in Retrawtrell.* At this present it is Mr. Irtons, and one 
Winders who bought his part of Latus, and he of Mr. 

Bolton. Bolton in Copeland was the Waybergthwaites' 
lands in Edw. ist time. One William Waybergthwaite 
held 23rd Ed. i^'., decern libratas terrce there of Thomas 
Multon of Gilsland, and his lands in Waybergthwaite of 
the Lord of Milium. It is at this day the land of Senhous 
and Kirkby. 

Cauder Abbey. And at the other side of this beck is 
seated the Abbey of Cauder, or Caldre, so called from the 
rill or beck falling from the mountains of+ . . into the 
dale where the abbey stands, and thence into the west 
ocean. The water had that name of the Irish inhabitants 
there taken from the form and nature of the place. The 
Abbey as I have read was first founded in the year of Grace 
1134, about the last year of King Hen. i"., when William 
FitzDuncan was Lord of Egremont. Howbeit I think it 
was not perfected till Thomas de Multon finished the 
works and established a greater convent of Monks there. 

* This name is queried in the margin of the Milbourne manuscript : nothing 
like it occurs on the Ordnance Map. Editor. 

f The mountains from whence the beck falls are named Caldfell (perhaps from 
the cold blasts there usually found) and the name seems thence to be derived to 
the rill. Gilpin. 


Thomas Multon gave to the Abbey half the mannor of 
Dereham, in the county of Cumberland, with the advowson 
of the church there, " ad sustentationem unius Conventus 
apud Caldram, prceter Conventum ibidem prius statutmn : " 
Ranulp Bonekill confirmed unto them their lands in 
Gilcruse. John Fleming gave JoUan Abbott there the 
patronage of Arloughden with some lands in great Becker- 

Jollanus was Abbot there 26 Hen. 3''''. 
John - Abbot 30 Hen. 3'"'^. 

Walter - Abbot 40 Hen. 2>"^.* 

St. Brides. Between Cauder Beck and Beckermet 
toward the sea stands St. Brides.t 

Beckermet. A little above St. Brides lies the mannor 
of Beckermet, now and of old the Flemings' lands of 
Rydal, who as mesne Lords between the Barons of Egre- 
mont and the possessors and land tenants of Rotington, 
Frisington, Arloghden, and Weddikar, did hold them as 
fees of Beckermet, and itself as a demesne of the baron as 
a fee of Egremont Barony. The first Fleming that I read 
of was Reginer Fleming whose son John was seized of the 
same in K. Ed. z^^. time and his son Thomas the son of 
John in Ed. 3'''^. time. 

* Cavvder Abbey is now (1687) the inheritance of Richard Patrickson Esq., the 

son of John Patrickson (a younger son of Patrickson of ye How), and 

Bridget one of the daughters of Sir Richard Fletcher the son of Thomas Fletcher 

of Cockermouth. The said Sir Richard Fletcher purchased the Abbey of 

and settled it upon his daughter Bridget, who enjoyed it for some time sole, and 
afterwards conveyed it by marriage to John Patrickson as aforesaid to whom 
she had issue, the said Richard now living and one daughter Bridget married to 

John Aglionby of Drawdykes Esq. The Patricksons give for arms Arg. 3

St. Bees. The church of St. Begh* was antiently a 
parish church erected and dedicated in honour of an Irish 
woman (named by some writers Begogh) sometime there, 
of great sanctimony, whereupon the town was first called 
Kirkby Begogh, i.e., villa sive habitatio ad Fanum Begce, 
and by that name of Kirkby Begogh the church, rectory, 
and town, (containing then seven great carucates of land) 
were given to the abbey of St. Marie's at York, by William 
de Meschines, then Lord of Egremont barony, and by him 
made a cell of York Abbey. t He also laid the first founda- 
tion of the priory, and that church which now standeth 
and endowed it. And his brotherj Randolph Meschines 
gave lands in Annerdale, or Annanderdale, and half a 
carucat of land in Egremont, and other nobles, barons, 
and gentlemen of the county did afterwards contribute 
unto the same, till it became, of a small foundation, a 
priory of good revenue able to support a prior and six 
monks there at all times and to defray all charges of 
building and other necessaries of the house yet always as 
cell of York untill it was dissolved by Hen. Sth. The 
name Begogh is Irish, derived of two words Beg-og, which 
by interpretation are englished Little Young. 

The bounders of William Meschines aforesaid which he 
gave the priory are in these words : " Totam terrain et totuin 
Feodum inter has divisas viz : a pede de Whitofthaven ad Ketel 
et per Ketel donee cadit in Egre et per Egre quousque cadit in 
mare." Retell runneth from off Whilly mere by Cleetar 
and Egremont and so into Eyn at Egremont : Egre is the 
foot of Eyn which falleth out of Eynerdale.

Eynerdale. Alnanderdale is that which is now called 
Eynerdale, a town and chapelry in the fells above Egre- 
mont. To this priory and abbey of St. Mary's at York, 
Waldeof as Lord of AUerdale son of Earl Gospatrick gave 
Stainburn, that prayers should be said there for the souls 
and health of K, Hen. i". Matilda his wife, the donor,

RoTiNGTON. Rotington villa ad prata Rotinge, so called 
because it was usually haunted with Barnacles, Rotgeese, 
and wild fowl before it was inhabited. It it now the 
mansion house of Henry* Sands, the Lord or owner 

thereof of that name according to the following pedigree 
viz :t 

Their ancestor Sands in the year of King 

had by it from Rotington. J But of 

what house or name the Rotingtons came I cannot say 
unless^ they were some younger brother of the Flemings 
for it is a fee of Beckermet. I read in a deed in K. John's 
time Robert de Rotington to be a witness and one Reynold 
de Rotington in K. Hen. 2""^. time. 

Whitehaven. Whithaven or Whit-toft-haven is a 
creek in the sea at the north end of a great bergh or rising 
hill there which is washed with the flood on the west side 
where is a great rock or quarry of white hard stone which 

* The Sands of Roting^ton (called in old writings de Sabulonibus) were originally 
seated upon Burgh Sands where they had their capital house at a place called to 
this day Sandsfield from which they took their sirname. 

Sands the last heir male of that name being dissatisfied as 'tis said, with the 
loss of a mistress, sold his estate at Rotington to Curwen of Workington, and 
went into Ireland, where he died. And Rotington is now (1687) in the possession 
of Henry Curwen of Workington Esq. being advanced by the Curwens to a far 
greater value than it was in the hands of the Sands. The Curwens purchased it 
for ;f 700 and it is now reckoned to be worth ,^300 p. an. GiLPIN.

§ It was antiently given to a younger brother of the Flemings who took their 
sirname of Rotington, from whence it came to the Sands, and from them by sale 
to the Curwens of Workington. It now belongs to Mr. Eldred Curwen, a younger 
brother of the half blood to Tho. Curwen of Workington Esq. Sir D.F's MS. f 


gives name to the village and haven. A very little rill 
there falls into the sea which makes the harbour where 
small b?,rks may enter and be defended by the hill from 
the tempests and winds. It was belonging to St. Beghs 
of antient time, for the Abbott of York in Edw. i^*. time 
was impleaded for wreck, and his liberties there by the 
King which he claimed from the foundation and to be 
confirmed by Richard Lucy in K. John's time to his pre- 

Hensingham. Hensingham or Hansingham Villa ad 
pratinn Johannis is a manner and town there now pur- 
chased by Thomas Salkeld of Satre, from Thomas Skelton 
of Branthwaite. It was holden of the Abbott of St. 
Marie's at York, per quartam partem feodi militis by the 
Skeltons in the time of K. Hen. 6'", But Mr. Robert de 
Branthwaite held a moiety thereof of Adam de Moresby, 
4 Ed. i^'., together with the manner of Branthwaite, per 
Servicium unius denarii per annum ad Natale Domini pro om- 
nibus serviciis. It descended from the Branthwaites to the 
Lords of Banton, and from thence to the Skeltons who 
married the coheir of Thomas de Whitrigg, Lord of little 
Banton. At the conquest one Gillesby or rather Gillesbred 
held the same, whose sons Roger and William granted to 
ye Abbey of York duas Bovatas in Hensingham et terrain de 
de Snartheved. Hence came the tenure to the Abbott.

For the above note the following has been substituted in the Milbourne MS

Whitehaven is now (1749) the possession of Sir James Lowther, Bart, and 
has by the care and industry of that family since they were owners thereof arisen 
from a small village and inconsiderable creek to a well built populous town and a 
safe harbour for ships of any burthen. From whence besides the exportation of 
coals to Ireland &c., a gieat trade is carried on to Virginia and other parts of the 
West Indies, also to Norway &c.

Arlokenden. Arloghden now corruptly called Arloken- 
den, Arnaden and Arladen, is parcel of the seignory of 
Beckermit, a ffee thereof. The place was so named by the 
Irish,* and gives name to the parish, town, and a family of 
gentlemen called Harlakenden, of whose issue male there 
are yet remaining some in the south parts. John le 
Fleming gave the patronage of the rectory to Jollan abbot 
of Caldre, in the 26 Hen. 3'''^. The lay fee was the in- 
heritance of . . . whose three daughters and co-heirs 
transferred their patrimony to the Harringtons, Lam- 
plughs, and ... in King John's time. 

Eynerdale. Eynerdale sallis ad Eyn, both the town and 
parish now called by the inhabitants. The Irish named it 
Lough-Eanheh Lacus vuliicrum, of the fowls that bred there 
in the islands; and the river Oonh-Eanheh and the dale 
Eanor or Ar-ean. The Saxons still retaining the Irish 
name called the bottom and valley Enerdale. It was at 
the Conquest desmene land of Copeland in William Mes- 
chines time, but his sont Randolph Meschines gave it 
to the Abbey of York, and half a carucat in Egremont, or 
as I think but some part of Enerdale, for it was Harring- 
ton's part of the demesn of Egremont in the partition of 
John Multon's three co-heirs, and descended to the 
Boyvills, and to the Grays and Parrs Marquess of Dorset, 
and now to Queen Elizabeth as an escheat for want of 
issue of Parr. 

Frisington. Frisington was antiently a gentleman's 
seat of that name, whose last heir male in Hen 4"^. time 
left three daughters and co-heirs viz : Johan, the wife of 
Richard Gaitfald ; Agnes, the wife of John Lowson ; and 
Ma. the wife of John Atkinson, who sold it to Wm. Lighe,

with whose posteritie it continued till Henry the son of 
Thomas the son of William sold the same to Anthony 
Patrickson, now owner thereof. It is a fee of Beckermit 
and holden of Fleming. 

Kelton. Kelton or Ketelton, villa Ketelli, was first a 
parcel of Lamplugh, and made a village by Ketellus, the 
son of Eldred and Saltre the capital messuage and demesne 
there was afterwards given by Gospatrick, the son of Orme 
the son of Retell, to the Abbey of York in frank alms. 
The Abbot made Satre a part of the cell of . . . But 
Kelton continued always a lay ffee and is the inheritance 
of one Moorhouse, grandchild to . . . wife to . . . 
Moorhouse, sometime laundress to Queen . . who gave 
Kelton to them and their heirs male. It escheated to the 
crown for want of issue in the Lord Marquess of Northamp- 
ton, Wm. Parr heir to the barons of Kendal, and to 
the Harringtons of Harrington, and Adingham. Parr 
was heir to the Marquis of Dorset Gray who had right 
thereunto by Cicely the Lord William Boyville's daughter 
and heir: her grandmother was daughter and heir to the 
Harringtons of Harrington. Kelton was holden as a ffee 
of Beckermit until the Lord Paramount's heir (3 copar- 
ceners) Elizabeth daughter of Thomas Multon transferred 
the seignory to Robert Harrington, and thereby ex- 
tinguished the mesualty of the Lordship of Beckermit. At 
the surpression of Abbies Dr. Lighe bought Saltre, and 
now Thomas Salkeld brother to Lancelot Salkeld of the 
Whitehall, doth enjoy the same by purchase from Hen. 
Lighe son to Thomas son to William brother to the Dr. 

Lamplugh. Lamplugh in the fells is that manor house 
and seignory in the barony of Egremont which gave name 
to the antient family of Lamplughs, a race of valorous 
gentlemen successively for their worthyness knighted in 
the field all or the most part of them. They bear for arms 
a sable cross batuny fleurie in a field d'or. Their issue 
male enjoyed the same from the Conquest or near that 


time to this day. The first Lord of Lamplugh that I read 
of, was William de Lancaster, who exchanged Working- 
ton and Lamplugh with Gospatrick the son of Orme, 
Lord of Seaton beneath Derwent, for Middleton in Lons- 
dale. This Wm. de Lancaster was a great baron, his 
lands lay about Kendal, in Westmorland. He was a great 
commander under Hen. 2"'^., in the wars against David of 
Scotland and Earl Henry his son, in those parts, and 
helped to recover the counties of Cumberland and 
Northumberland from the Scots, which K. Stephen had 
given them. By that exchange Lamplugh became the 
Lord of Seaton's lands. The said Gospatrick held it all 
his time, but after his death, his son Thomas gave it to 
one Robert de Lamplugh and his heirs for paying yearly 
a pair of gilt spurs to the Lord of Workington. This 
Robert held it in Hen. z^^., and when Rich. i'''. reigned. 
After Robert's death it descended to Adam his son in King 
John's time. To which Adam Richard de Lucy, then 
Lord of Egremont, and all Copeland, as Lord Paramount 
of Lamplugh, confirmed the same and other things, as 
Murton and Arlockden, unto him and his heirs, with 
diverse immunities. After Adam it descended according 
to the following unto John Lamplugh Esq., now Lord of 
the same.

The place was originally named Glan-Llough or Glan- 
fillough of the Irish inhabitants before the conquest, which 
word signifies the wet dale, Vallis humida, and thereof is 
formed that present word Lamplugh or Lanflogh. 

MuRTON. Murton or Moortown, villa ad Ericetum, is 
next unto Lamplugh westward, and is now the inheri- 
ance of John Lamplugh Esq. Of old his ancestors enjoyed 
the same, and enjoyed great liberties thereby, as to arrest 
and hold plea of greater nature than debt or detinue. Sir 
John Lamplugh held the same in Ed. 2"^"^. time and before 
I read of three of another family successively, grand- 
father, father and son, Gerard, Roger and Adam de Morton 
which have taken their sirname of the place. Morten is 
within the parish of Lamplugh, and is holden of Egremont 
immediately. But Lamplugh itself of Workington. 

LowESWATER. Loweswater lacus in valle vel proftmdo 
is the name of a great lake in the vale next to Lamplugh 
on the east side. It gives name to the town and parish 
church adjoyning, and was the lands of Randal Lyndsey 
in King Hen. 2"^*. time. In the 4th of Richard i". William

ville, for Loweswater and other lands. And in the 16 
Edw. i^'. it was antient demesne of Egremont, and by the 
partition between the two daughters and co-heirs of 
Richard Lucy, it was allotted to the moiety of Alan Mul- 
ton and Alice his wife as the 20th part of the barony of 
Egremont. Thomas Multon, calling himself Lucy after 
his mother's name, seated himself there, and bought of the 
Moresbies, Brackenthwait, in exchange of the moiety of 
Dissington, and also Thackthwaite, of an Agnes Dundraw 
the wife of Roger Lindby, which he gave in marriage to 
his sister Margaret the wife of Thomas Stanley, and her 
heirs. Howbeit it reverted to the heirs of Thomas Lucy 
and descended to Maud Lucy, who gave it and the rest of 
her patrimony to her 2nd husband the Earl of Northum- 
berland, in whose blood it continued till his posterity gave 
the same to K. Hen. 8*., who sold it to one Robinson, 

a priest whose heir did alien to Stanley, master of the 

mint : Sir Edw. Herbert and his wife daughter and heir to 
Stanley, sold it to Anthony Patrickson now lord thereof. 

Moresby. Morisceby or Mauriceby, now Moresby, took 
name first of one Maurice, who first seated himself there, 
the ruins of whose mansion house yet appearing approves 
the same. In that time when a gentleman placed his 
capital messuage or mansion house forth of a town or an 
antient village he named the same after his own name, as 
this Mauriceby, and such other in the country, viz : 
Gamelsby of Gamel, Etardby of Etard, Ormesby of Orme, 
so Crosby, Canonby, Richardby, Botchardby, Scotby, 
Terriby, Huberby, Alanby, &c., one part of the word re- 
membermg their names and the termination Bee or By 
their being a building there. And as the said Maurice 
gave name to this place so in success of time the same 
gave sirname to his successors there who were called 
Moresbies or Morescebys, the eldest of which family that 
I have yet read of was one Uckman, who gave land in 


Harrays and comon in Morisceby, to the Abbey of Holme 

DisTiNGTON. Distington, villa ad pratum Disting, lies 
between Harrington and Moresby, it is so called of the low 
wet meadow grounds there and was the inheritance of 
Sir Gilbert, the son of Gilbert de Dundraw (who was son 
to Odard Lord of Wigton barony, called Odardus de Logis), 
he lived in Rich i" and K. John's time, and was Lord of 
Distington, Dundraw, and Crofton. He gave lands to the 
Abbey of Holme Cultram and the priory of Carlisle in 
Distington and Crofton. He had issue Isolda wife to Adam 
de Tinnow. They gave the fourth part of Distington and 
the advowson of the rectory to Thomas, the son of Lam- 
bert de Multon, An. 42 Hen. 3'"^. And he had issue, Ada 
the wife of Stephen de Crofton, who gave their part of 
Distington to Thomas de Moresby and Margaret Lucy his 
wife, An. 6 Ed. i". Margaret did exchange it with her 
brother Thomas Lucy, for lands in Thackthwait, and 
Thomas the same with the Moresbies, for Brackenthwait 
and Lowswater. 

Harrington. Haverington, now Harrington, lies be- 
tween Distington and Workington, and was at the Conquest 
parcel of the inheritance of . . . Lord of . . . and 
is holden of Workington. This place gave name to the 
first of the Harringtons also Haveringtons of which house 
there sprung divers families, as that of Wetherslack, of 

* Moresby is now (16S7) the capital seat of the chief family of ye Fletcher's 
William Fletcher Esq. being present Lord thereof as heir in the 3rd or 4th descent 
to Henry Fletcher of . . . who purchased the same of . . . a.d. The 
said Henry had 3 sons; from the eldest descended this present VVm. Fletcher, 
from Lancelot his 2nd son came George, and from him Lancelot, and from him' 
Henry now alive. They enjoyed Tallantire (which they had by purchase An. 
from Dame Ratcliffe) and other lards to a considerable value near Cockermouth 
which were after sold by George to Sir Richard Fletcher of Hutton his cousin 
german, but Tallen tyre is still in their possession. And from Thomas the youngest 
son of the sd first Henry, the Fletchers of Hutton are descended Wm 
Fletcher present Lord of Moresby married one of the daughters of Sir Henry 
Fletcher of Hutton, Bart. Gilpin. ■' 


Aldingham, in Fourness in Lancashire, of Beamont in 
Cumberland, and one in Rutlandshire. The oldest were 
Lords of Harrington, and married the heir general de 
sanguine of Seaton, and therefore confirmed Flemingby 
to the Abbey of Holm Cultram, but he got not the lordship 
of Seaton, for his wife died in the grandfather's time who 
gave the land to her uncle Patrick de Culwen. Afterwards 
they married the sister and heir of William Cancessfield, 
whose father Richard Cancessfield married AHcia the daur. 
and heir of William and sister and heir of Michael Flem- 
ing of Adingham, in Hen. 3"^= time. And in Ed, 3'^'^^ time 
they married with the third co-heir of John de Multon 
Lord of Egremont, and at the last a daughter transferred 
the inheritance to the Bonvills, whose daughter Cicely did 
in like sort the same with the Bonvills' lands to Thomas 
Gray, son of John Marquis of Dorset. They held it three 
descents and lastly it fell to the crown by escheat from the 
death of Wm. Parr Marquis of Northampton. Another 
Harrington married the daughter and one of the two co- 
heirs of Bastingthwaite, whose last rebelled with Martin 
Thwai'th ; another married the third co-heir of Robert 
Brune of Bothill, and had her purparty. 

Workington. Next unto Harrington, between it and 
the foot of the river Darwent towards the sea, stands 
Workington Hall, now the mansion house and chief seat of 
Nicholas Curwen Esq., Lord of the manor of Workington 
in the barony of Egremont, and of the manor of Seaton 
on the other side of Darwent in the barony of Allerdale. 
A gentleman* descended of an honourable and great parent- 
age continually in the issue male from one Ketellus or 
Ketell his first ancestor (that I read of), who lived in 
William the Conqueror's time or in the days of William 
Rufus his son the next king of England, about which time

time I read of this Ketellus, but without any certainty of 
his father or from whom he descended or in what place 
or country he was seated. There was one Ketellus Lord 
of Newton, and another Ketellus the son of Ulff, a wit- 
ness to diverse antient evidences and deeds of feoffment 
made near that time, which neither in respect of the time 
nor place I may probably think to be the same. 

The first Lord of Workington after the Conquest was 
Wm. de Lancastre, who by the consent of William his son 
and heir, gave the towns of Workington and Lamplugh to 
Gospatrick the son of Orme the son of Ketell, in exchange 
for the town of Middleton in Lonsdale in Westmorland, 
where the said William de Lancastre had other large pos- 
sessions. And he did reserve to himself and his heirs a 
yearly rent of 6d. ad Nundinas Carleoli or a pair of gilt 
spurs, and bound Gospatrick and his heirs to do him 
homage and discharge his foreign service for the same to 
the barony or castle of Egremont. To this deed of ex- 
change was witness Ketell the son of Ulff. 

To this Orme the son of Ketell, one Waldeof the son of 
Gospatrick Earl of Dunbar in Scotland, and then being 
Lord of Allerdale, by the gift of Earl Randolph Meschines 
gave the manner of Seaton beneath Darwent, parcel of the 
said barony in frank marriage with Gunhild his sister. 
And the towns of Cambmerton, Graysothen, and Fleming- 

Seaton. And so became Seaton a mannor and the said 
Orme first Lord (after the Conquest) of ye same. The 
walls and ruins of his mansion house are to be seen there 
at Seaton to this day. 

The said Orme the son of Ketell had issue a son and 
heir by his wife Gunhild the Lord Waldeof's sister, whom 
he named Gospatrick after the name of Gunhild's father. 

To this Gospatrick the son of Orme and his heir, his 
cousin german Alan second Lord of Allerdale son and 
heir to the said Waldeof gave high Ireby which continued 
the Curwens' lands. 


The said Gospatrick the son of Orme, was the first of 
his house that was Lord of Workington, by the aforesaid 
exchange made with William de Lancastre, and second 
Lord of the manor of Seaton. He had issue Thomas, 
Gilbert, Adam, Orme, and Alexander, who took their sir- 
names as the manner was in that age of their father's 
name and were called Thomas fil Gospatricii, Gilbert fil 
Gospatric, &c. 

Gospatrick their father gave two parts of the fishing in 
Darwent and Flemingby to the abbey of Holme Cultram, 
with all the appendices except Waitcroft, which he gave to 
the priory of Carlisle, which Waitcroft John then prior of 
Carlisle regranted to Thomas fil Gospatrick his heir, to 
be holden of the priory freely, paying yearly 7s. rent at 
Pentecost and Martinmass. 

Thomas son of Gospatrick, son and heir of Gospatrick, 
succeeded his father in the inheritance. And had issue 
Thomas the son of Thomas the son of Gospatrick, Pat- 
rick, and Alan. 

To this Thomas the son of Gospatrick, one Rolland the 
son of Ughtred the son of Fargus sometime Lord of 
Galloway, gave the great Lordship of Culwen in Galloway 
in Scotland, in which grant the brothers of the said Thomas, 
Alexander and Gilbert sons of Gospatrick, and Thomas 
and William sons of the said Gilbert, are mentioned as 
witnesses. The said Thomas the son of Gospatrick, con- 
firmed his father's grant of Flemingby to the abbey and 
convent of Holm Cultram, and gave them the whole fishing 
of Darwent, which Thomas the son of Thomas, confirmed 
unto them. And the said Thomas the son of Gospatrick 
gave Lamplugh to Robert de Lamplugh and his heirs to 
be holden of him by paying yearly two gilt spurs. And 
he gave to Patrick his second son Culwen in Galloway. 

Thomas son of Gospatrick, died Dec. 7, a.d. 1152, and was buried in Shapp 
Abbey in Westmorland, to which he was a great benefactor. Sir D. F's MS. 


The said Patrick the son of Thomas the son of Gospat- 
rick, by the death of his eldest brother Thomas, the son of 
Thomas, succeeded as next heir to Thomas his father, and 
was called Patrick* Culwen de Workington. He pulled 
down the mannor house at Seaton, and dwelt thenceforth 
at Workington. And from him all his posterity were called 
in Culwen. He gave Cambmerton to his brother Alan1 
which was before a parcel of Seaton and bounded it forth. 
From that Alan the Cambmertons took their name. 
Gilbert de Culwen the son of Patrick de Workington was 
Sheriff of Cumberland 3 Ric. 2°^. 

Brigham. Brigham villa ad pontem was one of the five 
towns which William Meschines Lord of Copeland gave 
to Waldeof Lord of Allerdale at the Conquest. Waldeof 
gave Brigham to Dolphin (the son of Ailward, together 
with little Crosby Applethwaite and Langrig), in frank 
marriage with Matilda his sister. After some descents it 
fell to sisters, for in the 40th year of Hen. t,^^ Beatrice de 
Lowther and Thomas de Huthwaite gave their part of the 
rectory of Brigham to Isabel Countess of Albermarle, then 
Lady Paramount of Allerdale, who in the 8th Ed. i^' 
impleaded Robert de Yenwith and Alice his wife for the 
rectory, but after they agreed by a fine levied, that the 
Countess and the heirs of Isabel the wife of Walter 
Twinham, the daughter of the said Alice, the wife of Yen- 
with, should present alternis vicibus. In the 8th Ed. i'" 
Gilbert Huthwaite held the moiety of Brigham, and after 
that the Swinburnes of Huthwaite ever enjoyed that part, 
and it is this day in the possession of John Swinburn. 
The other moiety descended from Walter Twinham to 
Adam Twinham his son, who died seised thereof 35 Ed. 
i«. And Walter the son of Adam Twinham gave the 
rectory by fine unto John Harcla and his heirs 13 Ed. 2°'^ 
And by the attainder of Andrew Harcla Earl of Carlisle, 

* I find Patricius fil Thomse de Workington witness to a deed. G. 
t This Alan is witness to a deed 8 Ed. I. G. 


the rectory was seised to the king, though he stood seised 
in trust to the use of Henry Harcla son and heir to John 

Wythope. Wythorpe salicum convallis was a wast 
piece of Allerdale above Darwent, and consequently within 
the barony of Egremont. It lies upon Darwent where it 
becomes a greai: lake between Emelthwaite and Thorn- 
thwaite. Dame Alice Lucy the second daughter and 
co-heir of Richard Lucy, and wife to Alan de Multon, 
second son to Thomas Multon, who married the widow of 
Richard Lucy, gave Withorp and half of Whinfell, now 
Lorton, the eighth part of Broughton and certain corn out 
of Aspatrick mill, and three messuages and thirty acres of 
land in Caldbeck, unto John Lucy her son by the said 
Alan Multon, whom she named Lucy and not Multon, be- 
cause that Lucy was the greater family. And, for that her 
elder sister Annabell, who married Lambert Multon, did 
continue the name and arms of Thomas Multon their 
father in the family of Egremont, she caused her children 
to be named Lucy and gave the Lucys' coat to her pos- 
terity. She reserved of Withope a penny rent service or 
a pair of spurs and after it was inhabited it was worth 
£"10 per annum. The residue was worth ^^8 as. 2d., and 
there she reserved a rent service of -^3 per annum. The 
said John Lucy lived in the time of Hen. 3'''^ and Ed. i", 
and dyed in the time of Ed. 2"*^, about the 8th year of his 
reign. Hugh Lowther the son of Hugh Lowther enjoyed 
Withope, for in the 8th year of Ed. 2,'"^, Christian the 
widow of the said John Lucy sued him for her dower in 
Wythope. It descended in the issue male of the Lowthers 
unto Sir Richard Lowther, now knight, according to the 
following pedigree : — 
Hugh Lowther, who dyed 10 Ed. 3'''^. 
Hugh Lowther, Knt., son of Hugh, died 44 Ed. 3'''^. 
Hugh Lowther, son of Sir Hugh and Mary his wife, Ed. 3'^'^. 
Robert Lowther, died 8 Hen. 6'^ 


Hugh Lowther, who died 15 Ed. 4"^. 
John Lowther, temp. H. 8"". 

Sir Richard Lowther, temp. Eliz., who sold the same in 
the fourth year of King James, a.d. 1606, unto Richard 
Fletcher* of Cockermouth, chapman (the son of Thomas, 
the son of Henry Fletcher), who now enjoyeth the same 
to him and his heirs for ever and holdeth by the said 
services of Henry now Earl of Northumberland, as heir to 
Henry Piercy the first of that name Earl of Northumber- 
land, to whom Maud Lucy his wife, and last heir of the 
Lucies lands of that name in the 20th year of K. Rich. 
2°d^ gave the seignory of Allerdale. 

Embleton. Embleton, above Darwent, villa Amabilice 
lies next unto Wythope and Seatmurthow on the north- 
west side of Wythope. In the time of Rich, i^* it was 
part of the demense of Allerdale above Darwent. And 
then Robert Courtney, and Dame Alice Romeley his wife, 
one of the three daughters and co-heirs of William Fitz- 
Duncan (Lord of all Allerdale Ward from Duddon to 
Shawk and Wampoll), gave Embleton to Orme de Ireby

* Thomas Fletcher the father of this Richard who purchased Wythope, was a 
tradesman in Cockermouth, and so was Richard his son after him, whereby they 
gathered together a great estate. But Richard traded not long being content with 
the acquests of his father. He was afterwards knighted, and purchased divers 
lands beside Cockermouth of George Tallantire his cousin german, (the son of 
Lancelot, the son of Henry their common Gd. father). He also purchased Hutton

Ketell Lord of Seaton and Workington), and free com- 
mon pasture in Dockwray and Wythope. This Orme de 
Ireby was seated at High Ireby which his father gave him. 
Of that place his posterity took their sirname and were 
called Irebies. The hamlet Embleton continued in their 
name and possession till the time of K. Ed. 3'^'', according 
to the following pedigree : 

Orme de Ireby 




Thomas who sold the land to Sir John 
Kirkby, Knt. (This Thomas Ireby had issue Wm. Ireby, 
but what became of them afterwards appears not, nor 
doth it appear whether these Irebies are the right heirs 
of the first Orme). In the 3gth year of K. Ed. 3"^'^ Sir 
John de Kirkby Knt. held it in fee, and in the 22nd 
year of Rich. 2°'' one Geoffry Tillioll, in the right of Alice 
his then wife. In the 19th year of Hen. 6"" an assize of 
novel disseisin was brought by Eleanor the daur. of Robert 
Ross Knt. and others against James Kellome and Cathe- 
rine his wife, for Embleton. And 32 H. 6"" the said 
James Kellome and Cath his wife recovered half the lands 
against the said Eleanor Ross. In the 12th year of Edw. 
4* John Pawlett held the same of the Earl of Northum- 
berland. It is now the inheritance of Thomas Braithwaite 
a lawyer. 



The Barony of The Earl Randolph Meschines gave to 
Allerdale. Waldeof the son of Gospatrick Earl of 
Dunbarr in Scotland the great barony 
of Allerdale, which lieth between the rivers of Darwent 
and Wampool on the south and north parts, and on the 
west side is compassed by the sea, and abutting on the east 
side upon Dalston barony and Sebergham, where it is from 
them divided by the brook called Shawk, which falleth 
down northward into Wathempole or Wampol from Cald- 
beck, and on the other side of the hill by Bowland Beck, 
which falleth southward into Caldbeck beck. Then by the 
same rill running eastward untill it fall into Caldy, which 
river descending between it and Castle Sowerby, and the 
barony of Greystock keeps them asunder there on the 
east side of the mountain Carrak and Grysedale fells. 

It is called Allerdale of the river Alne. It was antiently 
writ Aln-er-dael, viz : the dale upon Aln. This syllable (er) 
being interposed betwixt Aln and Dale which signifies 
" ad " or " apud " at, or, upon, as in other names of places 
of that country, as Miterdale, the Dale upon Mite. Eyner- 
dale, the Dale upon Eyn; Ananderdale, contractly Aner- 
dale, the Dale upon Anand ; Duddenerdale, Dunnerdale, 
the Dale upon Dudden. 

The Lord Wm. Meschines baron of Egremont, brother

Gospatrick, all the lands between the rivers of Cockar and 
Darwent, and the five towns, Brigham, Eaglesfield, Crake- 
sothen. Dean, and Branthwaite, and the two Cliftons and 
Stainborn, whereby they became united to Allerdale barony 
and are commonly called Allerdale above Darwent, (tho' 
they be within the fejirony of Egremont). As all the estate 


on the other side of Darwent, for distinction sake is now 
commonly called Allerdale beneath Darwent. 

Waldeuf first baron of Allerdale seated himself first at 
Pap Castle* where he had a mansion house, but afterwards 
he moved to Cockermouth. 

He gave divers mannors within Allerdale to his kinsmen

Finally he died without issue male, therefore his nephew 
William FitzDuncan Earl of Murray succeeded him in 
his inheritance. 

William Romeley (called also W° FitzDuncan), Earl 
of Murray (who married Alice the daughter and heir of 


Rob. Romeley Lord of Skipton in Craven, begotten by the 
said Robert on his wife, the Lord W™ Meschines daugh- 
ter and heir baron of Egremont or Coupland, and the Earl 
Randolph Meschines brother), was the third baron of Aller- 
dale and also of Egremont, and Lord of Skipton in right 
of his wife. He had issue Wm. first (?) Lord of Egremont, 
who died under age, and three daughters — Sybill or Cicely, 
married to Wm. le Gros Earl of Albermarle with the 
. honour of Skipton for her purparty by K. Hen. 2^^ — Anna- 
bel married to Reginald Lucy, with the Seignory of 
' Egremont by the same king : and Alice Romeley first 
married to Gilbert Pippard, with the honour of Cocker- 
mouth, Aspatrick, and Allerdale, by the said King Henry, 
and afterwards to Robert Courtney by the Queen. But 
because the barony of Egremont was lesser in value than 
Allerdale, Reginald Lucy had some part of the barony of 
Allerdale (after the death of W™ FitzDuncan), but Dame 
Alice Romeley his wife's sister was chief lady of the 

Alice Romeley the third daughter and co-heir of W™ Fitz- 
Duncan was therefore the fourth lady of Allerdale. But 
having no children alive at her death she gave away divers 
mannors and lands to houses of religion and to her friends 
and kinsmen. She had a son named William, who was 
drowned in Craven coming home from hunting or hawking. 
His hound or spaniel being tyed to his girdle by a line, (as 
they crossed the water near Barden Tower in Craven), 
pulled his master from off his horse and drowned him. 
When the report of the mischance came to his mother, she 
answered Bootless Bayl brings endless Sorrow. She had also 
three daughters Alice, Avice, Mavice, who died all un- 
married and without children. Wherefore the inheritance 
was after her death parted between the house of Albemarle 
and Reginald Lucy baron of Egremont, descending to her 
sisters' children and their posterity. 

A moiety of the barony of Allerdale came to W" de 


Fortibus Earl of Albemarle, as son and heir to Hawise 
daughter and heir lo Cybill or Cecill the sister of Dame 
Alice Romeley, and after his death to W™ de Fortibus his 
son, whose sole daughter and heir Avelina (wife to Edward 
Crouchback, brother to K. Edward i^'.,) dying without 
issue, that moiety thereupon came also to Thomas Lucy 
and his heirs in the right of Annabel the second daughter 
of W™ FitzDuncan, and sister to Alice Romeley. That 
moiety contained Cockermouth and Papcastle and the fees 
holden of them, viz., of Cockermouth — Brigham, Eagles- 
field, Dean, Clifton, Crakesothen, Huthwaite, Collundland, 
Ullaik, Branthwait, Embleton, Pardeshew, and other lands 
above Darwent. And of Papcastle — Threpland, Holmes, 
Castlerigg, Tallentyre, Broghton, Ribton, Ireby base, Bol- 
ton, and Wigton, with their appurtenancies. 

The other moiety of this barony descended to Alice and 
Annabel Lucy daughters and co-heirs to Reginald Lucy 
and Annabel his wife, sister to the said Alice Romeley, 
whereby that moiety was subdivided. To Annabel Lucy, 
Lambert Multon the son of Thomas succeeded. Lambert 
had issue Thomas. Thomas had issue John Multon Lord 
of Egremont, whose three daughters parted his lands 
amongst them. Margaret the youngest of them was mar- 
ried to the last Thomas Lucy, and united again the moiety 
of Allerdale. 

Alice Lucy the other daughter of Reginald Lucy had 
issue Thomas Lucy, who had issue another Lucy, to whom 
the other moiety of Allerdale deiX;ended by the death of 
Avelina Countess of Albermarle. 

Anthony Lord Lucy brother and heir to the last Thomas 
Lucy, succeeded in the inheritance. He married Eliza- 
beth the daughter of Robt Tilliolf Lord of Scaleby. This 
Anthony Lucy was he who arrested Andrew Harcla Earl 
of Carlisle in K. Ed. 2'^ time, and gave judgement up- 
on him for his treason. He had issue Thomas, and died. 
Thomas married Margaret one of the daughters of John 



Multon of Egremont, and by ntr again brought in again 
the fourth part (jf Allerdale. He dyed the 39th Ed. 3""^ 
Anthony succeeded Thomas, who died* .... 

DovENBY. Dovenbie or Dolphinby in Allerdale, was 
first called of one Dolphin the son of Ailward who first 
seated himself there and called the name of his mansion 
house Dolphinby from his own name. His posterity were 
called Dovenbies of the place corruptly instead of Dolphin- 
bies. In Henry 2'^'^ time, one Richard de Dovenby 
possessed the same, and his son Benedict de Bridekirk 
confirmed to the Abbot of Caldre lands in Gilcrouse. 
Waldeof first Lord of Allerdale gave unto the said Dolphin 
the son of Ailward, with Maud his sister, Applethwait 
besides Keswick, Little Crosby, Langrigg, and Brigham, 
with the patronage of Brigham. Ailward his father seated 
himself at Ailwardby, naming the place after his own name. 
After the issue male of Dolphin were extinguished, which 
was about the time of Hen 3"''' Dovenby fell by marriage 
to the Rawlles or Rowles. In the 51st year of Hen 3'^'^ 
one Roger de Rawll was possessed of Dovenbie. After 
him one Alan de Rawll held the mannor of Dovenbie, in 
the 33rd Ed i^', of Thomas Lucy. In the 23rd of Edw 
3'''^, Richard Kirkbrydet was Lord of Dovenby, and died 
then seised thereof, leaving his son Richard a ward. He 
died ye 22nd Rich z^, or the ist of Hen 4"^. And by his 
daughter or sister, Dovenby was transferred into the family 
of the Lamplughs, she being married to a younger brother 
of Sir Thomas Lamplugh of Lamplugh, in whose issue 
male the right thereof remaineth at this day.

to Sir Hugh Morvill. Of her it is written (by a monk) that 
in the old age of her husband she was greatly enamoured of 
one Lyolf, a young gentleman that served her husband 
whom by no means she could persuade to abuse himself to- 
wards his master, he dutifully avoiding every occasion that 
might further her desire. But being commanded one day by 
his master to carry a dish of meat to her when she kept her 
chamber : after he was entered, she caused a gentlewoman to 
make fast the door and forthwith shamed not to move him 
to lye with her, as often times before she had done. But 
he continued resolutely faithfull to his master, and would 
not consent for anything she could do or say. Where- 
upon fearing that he would discover her lewd incontinency 
and turning her inordinate lust into revenge, she presently 
made her gentlewoman to make a great outcry. When 
her husband heard them he came into the chamber with 
his servants and in great rage asked the cause of such 
disquietness. She accused the young gentleman that he 
would have ravished her, and thereupon he commanded 
him to be bound and cast into a lead full of scalding 
water. Sir Hugh Morvill his son by that wife, afterwards 
killed Thomas Beckett the Archbishop of Canterbury, 
wherefore the monks of that time gladly took hold of what- 
soever might disgrace him or his parents to posterity.* 

After Radulph Engayne, the estate fell to William his 
son, and from him to Sir Hugh Morvill's father in the

Hugh of Ishall and Burgh was not the murderer of Thomas a Beckett: Sir Huo-h

right of the said Ada Engayne his wife, and by her death 
to Sir Hugh Morvill himself, and after his death with his 
daughters and co-heirs to Sir Richard Lucy Lord of Egre- 
mont and Sir Richard Waryne or Werune, who enjoyed 
the same together with the barony of Burgh, and after 
them it fell to Thomas the son of Thomas de Multon, (as 
will hereafter appear in the title of Burgh). Thomas de 
Multon in the time of Hen. 3'^'^ entailed Ishall and Blen- 
crake with the appurtenancies to his two younger sons 
Edward and Hubbert, and their heirs general successively. 
And so lost the lords of Ishall the services of Newton, 
because that tenure remained in the granter Thomas Mul- 
ton and his heirs as it had to him descended. 

By that intail Hubert Multon enjoyed Ishall, and William 
his son after him, whose daughter Margaret brought the 
inheritance into the family of the Lighes in Ed 2^ time, 
whose issue male have enjoyed it till old Thomas Lighe, 
the last of that name, gave it to his wife Maud Redmain, 
whom he married being a widow, after the death of his 
first wife, a lusty young gentlewoman, who granted it 
presently after his death to Wilfred Lawson, her present 

* Maud Redmain the widow of old Thomas Leigh of Ishall being- possessed of 
the inheritance as appears by the context, soon after married Wilfreij Lawson, and 
as frankly conveyed over the inheritance to him as she had received it of Leigh, 
which Wilfred, (afterwards Sir Wilfred), having no issue by the sd Maud his wife, 
settled his estate upon William Lawson, a kinsman of his own, to the great dis- 
gust of Mary Irton, (heir general of Maud Redmain), who had long time before 
continued in hopes that he would have settled it upon her, but being disappointed 
in that she attempted to recover it by law agst William, pretending that Maud 
Redmain had not made a legal conveyance to Sir Wilfred, and that what she did 
was the effect of horrible threatenings and violence. But the suit was at last 
ended by composition, William Lawson giving her for her title the tithes of Blen 
crake and the demesne of Threlkeld, worth together about ,^200 per annum. 
The pedigree of the Lawsons of Ishall 

William Lawson married the daughter of Bewly of Heskat in Caldbeck, and 
had issue by her Sir Wilfrid Lawson, Knt. now (16S7) Lord of Ishall. Sir Wilfrid 
Lawson purchased Heskat hall and married ye daughter of Sir Edward Mus- 
grave, of Hayton, Knt., (the father of William, the father of Sir Edward Mus- 
grave, Bart, the father of Sir Richard now living), by whom he had issue William, 

Wilfrid, Edward, Henry, and George, and daughters 

William the oldest son of Sir Wilfrid Lawson married Strickland, 

daughter of Sir . . . Strickland, and became blind and died in the lifetime of 


Threpland. Threpland, contentionis terra, is now a 
village and the inheritance of John Salkeld, a younger 
brother of Lancelot Salkeld of Whitehall. He holds it 
of AUerdale barony and had it by purchase from Lancelot 
Skelton of Arminthwait Esq. It descended to him by 
several descents of the Skeltons from Thomas Skelton a 
younger brother who married the co-heir of Henry Multon 
Knt and Margaret his wife, in Ed 3"''^ time. Multon and 
his wife had it by fine from W™ de Rednesc alias Mul- 
castre, An. 15 Ed 2. And the said W" Thomas and 
John Mulcastre brethren successively had it before Mul- 
ton by the gift of Michael de Harcla in the time of Ed. 
IS', father to Andrew Earl of Carlisle. 

Uldale. The mannor of Ulndale lyeth above Bolton, 
and is so called of the river Eln running through the 
same, which river is diversely named as Elne, Alne, and 
Olne, (the Romans named it Olena), and from thence the 
valley thereof is called Ulndale. This mannor (being a 
parcel of the barony of AUerdale), together with the man- 
nor of Gilcrouse, was given by Waldeof the son of Earl 
Gospatrick, unto Adam the son of Lyolf brother of 
Phorme the son of Lyolf baron of Greystoke, from which 
Adam they descended by a daughter to the Bonckhills, who 
granted forth Gillcrouse to a younger brother Robert 
Bonekill : And the sons of the said Robert, Thomas 
Bonekill and Walter, gave away their inheritance in 
Gilcrouse to the abbey of Caldre, which Ranulph Bone- 
kill Knt., then Lord Paramont both of Ulndale and 
Gilcruse, confirmed to the abbot. Sir Ranulph had issue 
Alexander, who had issue Adam, who gave Awerthvvait 
parcel of his mannor of Ulndale to the priors of Carlisle 

his father leaving- on Wilfrid and two daug-hters. Sir Wilfrid Lawson purchased 
a baronet's patent and dyed Dec. i, i6SS, leaving his estate and honour to Sir \V. 
L. Bart., his grandcl ild. Wilfrid the second son of Sir Wilfrid Lawson had by the 
gift of his father Bray ton and other lands of equal value with the paternal which 

he now enjoys. He married the daughter of ... . James, 

of Washington, in the county of Durham, by whom he has issue. Gilpin. 


The said Adam had issue another Alexander Bonekill 
whose daughter and heir first married to John Stewart 
kinsman to the King of Scots, and afterwards to David 
Bregham a Scottish knight of great valour, and by him 
transferred the inheritance to the family of the Breghams. 
This David Bregham was a companion of W'" Walleys 
that was executed for treason at London, committed against 
Edw. i*^' by resisting that king's attempt for the superior 
Lordship of Scotland, and by taking part with Robert 
Bruce against the Balliols' right to the crown of Scotland. 
Walleys was a man of extraordinary strength, and David 
Bregham an extraordinary good horseman, whereupon the 
Scots thus rymed on them : 

The man was ne'er so wight or good 
But wurthy Walleys durst him byde 
Nor never horse so wyld or wood 
But David Bregham durst hin ryde. 

David Bregham thereby forfeited his estate to Anthony 
Lord Lucy, then Lord of AUerdale. And so Ulndale again 
became parcel of that antient barony, and the manor 
extinguished of right. Yet it was continued as a manor 
by the Lucies posterity and the Piercys Earls of Northum- 
berland untill the sixth Henry of that name gave his 
inheritance to Hen. 8*, which king granted forth the man- 
nor of Ulndale to Thomas Dalston and Eleanor his 2"** 
wife, and to the heirs of their two bodies, and now Chris- 
topher Dalston gent, their heir as in their right enjoyeth 
the same. 

BoTHiLL. Bothill was demesne of AUerdale till Waldeof 
Lord of AUerdale gave the town to Gamel the son of 
Brun in Hen. i^' time, whose posterity enjoyed the same 
in the issue male. His father's chief mansion was at 
Brunskeugh beneath the river Eden near the wastes. 
Whereupon Radulph the son of Gamel was called Ranulph 
de Feritate, Rauf of the waste, and so his son Robert 
de Feritate. They were Lords of Glasson, Beaumont, 


Drurnburgh, and Bowness, which they held of the Lords 
of Brough. In Hen. 3'^'^ and Ed. i^' time, one Richard 
Brun was Lord of Bothill and of the. sixth part of Tor- 
penhow and the premises, and after that Robert Brun, in 
Ed. 3"^^ time. Afterwards Bothill and the Bruns' lands fell 
to three co-heirs married to Nicholas Harrington brother 
or kinsman of the Lord of Harrington, W™ Culwen of 
Workington, and Thomas Bowet. In the part of Nicholas 
Harrington succeeded James who died 5th Hen. 5*, and 
after James, Sir Rich. Harrington Knt. 7th Ed. 4*'', and 
it is now in the possession of Thomas Denton of Warnhill. 
To W™ Culwen's part succeeded his heirs of Workington 
till Sir Henry Culwen Knight, father of Nicholas, sold the 
same to Anthony Barwis of Hildkirk Esq. Bowet's part 
of Bothill is now enjoyed by Thomas Ellys, whose ances- 
tor W™ Ellys purchased the same of Nicholas Bowet by 
fine levyed 8th Ed. 4*. 

The town stands on the side of a hill, where in old times 
the watch was kept day and night for sea wake, which 
service was performed by the county beneath Darwent at 
that place, and above Darwent in Coupland at Buthill, or 
Bothill in Milium and at Bothilton in Egremont barony. 
It is called Servituim de Bodis in old evidences, whereupon 
Bothill was named the Bode or Both-hill, and a village at 
the foot of it Bothillton — Bodorum Collis. The country 
people call a lantern a bowet, which was a name then in 
use for a light on the shore to direct sailors in the night ; 
properly signifying a token, and not a light or lantern. As 
they call a message warranted by a token a bode-word at 
this day. And the watchmen be called bodesmen, because 
they had a bode or watch word given them for the enemies 
fraud in the night. 

ToRPENHOW.* Torpenhow was at the Conquest of 
England ancient demesne of the barony of Allerdale, until 

* In this town there was an antient seat belonging to the antient family of the 
Applebies which is now enjoyed by Sir Geo. Fletcher of Hutton. Sir D. F's MS. 


Alan the son of Waldeof gave the same in frank marriage 
with Gunhyld his sister to Ughtred the son of Fargus 
Lord of Galloway to be holden by him and bis heirs by 
cornage and other services. In Hen. 2*^= time, one Philip 
de Valomes in the right ov his wife held the same of 
Reginald Lucy and Annabel his wife, who had the moiety 
of AUerdale till the King seised the tenure. And in King 
John's time Robert Stuteville brother to the Lord Nicholas 
Stuteville (Lord of Lyddall barony) held it. An. 31 Hen. 
3"^, W™ the son of William de Ulfesby gave three caru- 
cats of land there to Robert Mulcastre, and held five parts 
of Torpenhow, (Brun held the other sixth part which he 
adjoined to his manner of Bothill) of the said Lord of 
Lyddall heir to Stuteville. The said five parts descended 
to the Mulcastres, and from them to the Tilliolfs, whose 
co-heirs transferred the same with other lands to the 
families of the Moresbies and Colvilles. 

It is called Tor-pen-how, every syllable of which word 
in the several languages of the people which successive- 
ly did inhabit the place doth signify after a sort one 
thing. The Britons who were the first inhabitants call a 
rising topped hill (such an one as is there) Pen, i.e., a head. 
The Saxons next succeeding them, and not well under- 
standing the signification of Pen, called it Tor-Pen, i.e., 
the pinacle Pen. And they who came next, perhaps under- 
standing neither of the former names, called it (as we do 
yet) Torpenhow, i.e., the how or hill Torpen. Others have 
thought it so named upon this occasion: the Saxons 
called a village dorp, or rather thorp, and finding a hill 
there to be called of the Britons (their forebears) Pen a 
head or hill top, they named it Dor-pen-how, the Town hill. 
Others will have it named of one Turpe, whom they sup- 
pose to have been lord thereof, of which name they find 
upon record one Robert Turpe sometime Lord of Eden- 
hall, but with better probability they may conjecture 
Edenhall to have been first a country village and therefore 


the said Robert to be rightly called Robert de Dorpe, and 
he and his ancestors might cause his house and that 
dorp or village afterwards to be called Edenhall, or the 
hall upon Eden, after his ancestors had seated themselves 
there and built a hall or capital messuage or mansion 

Bolton or Bothilton. Bolton or Bothilton was an- 
tient demesne of Allerdale till Adam the son of Waldeof 
gave the same to Robert Bastingthwait, and the Isle of 
Estholm to his bastard brother Gospatrick the son of 
Waldeof, one of whose posterity took the name of Basten- 
thwait. I read of divers knights of that name, one Sir 
Robert de Bastenthwait in Hen. . . . time, and Adam 
his son, and one Alexander in Ed. i'** time. The said 
Gospatrick seated himself at Bolton, from whom it des- 
cended unto the Lascells by Christian the wife of Duncan 
in Rich, i*^' time : and to Thomas in Hen. 3"^"^ time. 
Thomas de Lascelles his son Lord of Bolton married 
Christian daughter of W" de Ireby, and confirmed to ye 
abbott and monks of Holm Cultram the hermitage of St. 
Hyld, now called Hildkirk, and granted them common in 
Bolton. His widow Christian Ireby the daughter of W™ 
dyed 33rJ Ed. i^* seised of Heslespring in Westward, 
Gamelsby and Unthank beyond Eden, and of Market Ireby, 
which Ireby she held of John Boyvill of Thoresby. In 
Ed. 2°*^^ time Roger Mowbray Lord of Bolton forfeited his 
estate therein by taking a part with Robert Bruce. After 
it came to his son Robert Mowbray in Ed. 3'"'^ time, and to 
Alexander Mowbray, and after to the Nevills, 12 Ric. 2°'^.t 
John Nevill of Raby died seised of Bolton and the Mowbray 
lands in Gamelsby and Unthank. In the 22nd of that 

* I read of one Adam de Torpenhow, but I know not whether he was father of 
Alice Stutevill or issue male to Ughtred Valones or Stuteville. Roger de Quincy 
constable of Scotland in the rig-ht of his wyfe, one of the daughters and fieirs of 
Allan son of Roland son of Ughtred, had the tuition of Sybill de Valones, and 
g-ave the king fifty marks 7 Hen. 3. Gilpin. 

f Ric. 2nd., granted it to Nevill of Raby, A.R.i., par. 2, m 13, in Turri Lend, 



king's reign Radulphus Nevill held Bolton and Basting- 
thwait of Maud Lucy. Thenceforth the Nevills Lords 
Latimer held the same untill it fell to Henry now Earl 
of Northumberland, by the death of his mother the 
Countess one of the daughters and co-heirs of the last 
Lord Latimer, of the name of the Nevills.* 

Caldbeck. Caldbeck was long after the Conquest a 
wast forest ground parcel of Allerdale. It is a dale lying 
between Warnell Fell and the mountains Carrick and 
Grisedale Fells. It was first called Caldbeck of a rill or 
beck that falleth down eastward through the same into 
Caldey, and therefore Caldey Beck contractly Caldbeck : or 
of the coldness of the place which is for most part in win- 
ter covered with snow, and therefore called the Coldbeck, 
which in the dialect of the country is Caldbeck. It con-

taineth that dale now inhabited, and a great part of the 
mountains of Mosdale and Grisedale untill the White- 
Water Dash at the head of Alne or Elne that falleth into 
Ulndale. The two dales on the east side of the mountains 
are hence named viz : Mosdale of a great moss ground 
there, and Grisedale of a store-house there, which the 
barons of Greystoke held of Caldbeck, where they kept 
their sheep, cattle, and swine, and suffered the porklins 
to run wild in the woods that grew in the skirts and borders 
of the mountains. 

Out of Westmorland and the east parts of Cumberland 
there lay (as yet there doth) an highway or beaten street 
through Caldbeck into the west country of Cumberland, 
which was dangerous to passengers, who were often robbed 
in that place which was much haunted by thieves in the 
woods and mountains there, whereupon Randulph Engayne* 
the chief forester of Englewood granted to the prior of 
Carlisle license to build there an hospital for the relief of 
poor travellers that might happen to be troubled in these 
thievish parts or annoyed by the storms or snow in winter. 
And he further gave liberty to the prior to inclose a part 
of the same, which he did where the church stands at this 
time, which inclosure became part of the glebe of the 
church. The prior procured not his consent for the right 
of the soil but without his consent it could not be inclosed, 
for that great large deer lodged continually in the moun- 
tains and woods there, and it was then used as a park 
or forest ; and the right of the soil was in the barons of 
Allerdale. After this hospital was built they founded the 
church to the honour of St. Mungo ; and the place became 
fully inhabited in that part of the same called Caldbeck 
Uppeton. And afterwards it grew inhabited under the fell 
sides, which later buildings they called Caldbeck Underfell. 

* Or Sir Hugh Morvill. Gilpin. 



First that part towards Greystock, as Hesket* and Halt- 
clugh, was brought to tillage as best fitting for corn which 
is^he lower end of the dale, andUhereforth the' hamlet at 
the church standing higher in the] dale was called Cald- 
beck up in the town, and contractly Uppeton. 

The priors became patrons of the rectory by the grants 
and confirmations of William de Vescy and Burga his 
wife, and Dame Alice Romeley Lady of Allerdale. They 
then dissolved the hospital and endowed the church with 
the lands thereof, about King John's time. In Hen. 3'''^^ 
time one John Francigena, Francois, or French, a kins- 
man of Gilbert Francois Lord of Routhcliff was parson 
there and got a great inclosure in Warnhill bank in the 
forest of Englewood, which he joined to the glebe, but the 
monks of Holm so quarrelled him that he was glad to 
part stakes and gave them that moiety of the same which 
is now called Friar Hall, and kept that moiety to himself 
called the Parson's park. 

K. Hen. 8*^ sold Caldbeck Uppeton to Thomas Dais- 
ton de Caldbeck; and Caldbeck Under Fell to Thomas Ld. 
Wharton and his heirs, who being warden at that time of 
these West Marches so treated the said Thomas Dalston 
that he was glad to sell him Uppeton also, and now Philip 
Lord Wharton his grandchild enjoyeth the same. After- 
wards in the time of Qu. Mary, the Earl of Northumberland 
granted the reversion of Caldbeck to him and his heirs 

* I have seen an old brass seal belonging- to the Bewlies (fenes Wilfrid Lawson 
de Brayton who now enjoyes the estate of Heskat, by the gift of Sir Wilfrid Law- 
son, Knt. and Bart, his father, who purchased the same of the Bewlies his mother's 
kinderd), the seal is this coat of arms (arg. a chevron between three daws heads 
erased sable), but the inscription about it is (in the German character used in 
England about 200 years ago) SigMuvi jFohamiis Sutton, so that (it seems) the 
Bewlies had this coat from the Suttons, together with the estate by the heirs 
general. Gilpin. 

It is now called Hesket Newmarket, from a market lately set up there, and 
in contradistinction to another Hesket in the forest of Englewood. It was accord- 
ing to Mr. Gilpin, formerly the estate of the Suttons, and descended from them 
by the heirs general to the Bewlies. Sir Wilfrid Lawson, of Ishall, Bart., (whose 
mother was a Bewley), purchased it of his mother's relations, and gave it to 
Wilfred Lawson, Esq., of Brayton, his 2nd son (afterwards Sir Wilfred), in whose 
family it is, 1749. Milbourne MS.

Ireby. Ireby, Camden saith it was called Arbeia in ye 
time of the Romans. Their band of soldiers called the 
Barcarii Tigrienses were then placed there. At the Con- 
quest it was a gentleman's seat, and a village, and then 
called Ireby, and now it is become two mannors, High 
Ireby, in old evidences called Alta Ireby, because it stands 
higher on the hill : and Low Ireby, in antient writings 
named Ireby Base, and Market Ireby also, of a liberty to 
hold a fair and market there granted by the King . . 
to . . . Lord thereof, and ever since continued. The 
High Ireby is more antient, howbeit the other is seated in 
the better place : and being land of greater men successively 
hath always been of more account and hath some deal 
obscured the other. 

High Ireby. High Ireby was parcel of the demesne 
of Allerdale in Waldeof's time, and Allan his son and heir 
granted it to Gospatrick the son of Orme Lord of Seaton 
and Workington. The same Gospatrick gave it to his 
younger son Orme the son of Gospatrick who was there- 
upon called Orme de Ireby, and from him all the Irebys 
are descended and take their sirname. Robert de Courtney 
and Dame Alice his wife one of the three co-heirs of 
William FitzDuncan Lord of Allerdale gave to this Orme 
de Ireby Emelton in Rich. 1=^' time. And he held lands in 
Waverton. He had issue Adam his heir, and William a 
priest that gave lands in Gilcruce to the Abbey of Holm 
Cultram. Adam had issue Thomas his heir, and WiUiam 
and Allan, father of Isaac who gave his dwelling house in 
Ireby (called Isaacby, now Prior Hall), to the priory of 
Carlisle. Thomas had issue John, and he Thomas, the 
father of W™ Ireby (the last Lord of that name of Ireby 
Alta that I read of). Lord of Gamelsby and Glassenby. 

Ireby Base. Ireby Base, or Market Ireby, is now 
Musgrave's lands of Crookdake, and was the Tilliofs' from 
the death of Robert Tilliof, that died 39 Ed. ^'■^. Robert 
had it of Thomas Middleton the son of Peter the son of 


Adam, to whom Christian the daughter of W" de Ireby 
then wife of Robert Bruse, and late widow to Thomas Fitz- 
Duncan Lasciell of Bolton gave it by fine 33 Ed. 1='. She 
held it of W" Boyvill of Thoresby Knt. whose father 
Guido Boyvill married the heir general of the Thoresbies ; 
whose ancestor one Herbert de Thoresby had first made 
it an assart in the forest and rented it to the King. W" 
de Ireby was but a younger brother, but was advanced by 
K. John to a far better estate than his eldest brother, who 
also made him Knight and preferred him to the marriage 
of Odard's daughter and heir, Lord of Glassonby and 
Gamelsby, then the King's ward.* 

Blennerhasset and Uckmanby. Blennerhasset and 
Uckmanby was parcel of AUerdale, which Alan Fitz- 
Waldeof gave unto Radulph de Lindsey with ye sister of 
ye said Alan named Ochtreda in frank marriage. From 
them the inheritance came into the Mulcastres. In the 
time of King H. 3^^ Robert de Mulcastre held the same.

Newton. Newton in Allerdale is now the inheritance 
of Edward Musgrave second son to William and his wife 
Isabel Martindale, one of the co-heirs of . . . Martin- 
dale, last of that name Lord of Newton. To him it 
descended from one Roger Martindale his ancestor, who 
married the daughter and heir of Thomas de Newton lord 
thereof in Ed. 3'''^^ time, which Thomas and his ancestors 
lineally descending from father to son enjoyed the same 
from the time of K. Stephen untill the death of Thomas 
fil Thom, fil Rich, fil Adam, fil Rich fratris Adam fil 
Retell de Newton fil Odard de Wigton, to which Odard 
Alan 2nd Lord Paramount of Allerdale gave Newton, and 
afterwards granted the seignory thereof to Radulf Engayne 
with Ishall. The said Retell gave to Alan of Hensingham 
his third son a piece of land where he first built his capital 
messuage and named it Al .... (Alanby), now that 
township so called to this day . . the inheritance of 
William the son of . . . who married another co-heir of 

Holm Cultrum. The Holm Cultrum was waste forest 
ground replenished with red deer, and a demesn of Aller- 
dale at the Conquest. Howbeit it seems by the charters of 
the Abbey that it was the soil and inheritance of Henry 
Earl of Carlisle son to David Ring of Scots that died 
before his father, (for Malcolm the Maiden succeeded his 
grandfather David in the Ringdom of Scotland, as eldest 
son to the said Henry and next heir to the Ring). In the 
time of Stephen, when he usurped the state of Engtetnd, 
he gave Cumberland to the Scots to be assured of their 
friendship. And this Earl Henry then gave two parts of 
Holme Cultrum to the abbot and monks there and granted 


the third part thereof to Alan the son of Waldeof for his 
hunting there, which Allan then lord of Allerdale gave 
instantly the said third part to the Abbey as that which 
the"said Henry FitzDavid had given him at the foundation 
thereof. And Waldeof the son of the said Alan consented 
to the grant with his father which the said Henry con- 
firmed and David and Malcolm aforesaid. 

At the death of King Stephen Henry FitzEmpress the 
2nd of that name King of England entered upon Cum- 
berland, which K. Stephen had before given to David 
King of Scots, and therefore the monks acknowledged him 
their founder. He granted them by his charter totam 
Insulani de H olmcultnim et Raby by their right bounds 
timber and pasture in the forest of Englewood, which his 
gift K. Rich, and King John his sons and successors in 
the kingdom also confirmed with many liberties expressed 
in their letters patent without mention of any act done by 
the Scots. It was then bounded by that little syke of 
water that falls into Wampool at Kirkbride ascending up 
into Cockley as the moss and hard ground meet. Thence 
it goes into the middle of the moss between Wathholm 
and Lawrenceholme and so by the moss and wood to Anter- 
potts. Thence down Waver unto Crompbeck, Thence 
up Crompbeck till it receive Wythskeld, so up that syke 
unto the head thereof, then turning west unto a syke that 
compasselh Mealdriggs on the north and west side till it 
fall into Pow-Newton, so as Pow-Newton falls into the 
sea, thence along the coast unto the foot of Wampool, and 
so up Wampool unto Kirkbride aforesaid. All this was 
the first foundation of the Kings, wherein those monks pre- 
sently erected five granges for husbandry, viz : Old Grange, 
Grange de Terms, Maybergh, Skinburn and Calfhow, and 
Raby, and turned all into arable meadow and pasture.* 

Shortly after Gospatrick the son of Orme gave them a

part of his manner of Seaton and the chapel there and 
the town of Kelton, and his son Thomas a fishing in . . 
. . He exchanged also with them Waitcroft for the said 
Kelton. Sir Hugh Morvill gave them his rectory of Burgh 
which they did appropriate to their house. And his daugh- 
ter Joan and his successors a salmon fishing in Eden. 
Sir Hugh Morvill also gave them pasture in Lasingby for 
500 sheep, ten kine, and ten oxen, and certain lands for 
their young cattle of a year old. 

Reginald Carliel gave them Newby on the moor which 
his cousin Richard the son of Richard the son of Troit gave 

Robert Turpe gave them land and pasture for 700 wea- 
thers in Edenhall. 

Richard de Elneburgh and William son of Simon 
Sheflings Lords of Elneburgh and Dearham gave them 
a fishing at the mouth of the river Alne. 

Henry FitzArthur FitzGodard Lord of Milium gave 
them Leakley in Milium which belongs to Seaton nunnery 
there. S"^ Gilbert FitzGilbert de Dundragh gave them

King John and his brother Rich. i. gave Hildkirk and

And K. Hen. 3'''*. Freerhall at Caldbeck. 

Lambert de Waverton and other freeholders there gave 
much land in great Waverton. 

Richard Earl Strongbow and John de Curcy lands and 
liberties in Ireland. 

Ughtred FitzFergus Lord of Galloway gave them the 
town of Kirkgunnyon there ; and divers others in Scotland, 
as W" FitzMichael de Kirkonnell, lands in Kirkonel ; 
Patrick FitzThomas of Workington, Lochentor or Locho- 
tor; the Bp. of Glasgow the chapel of Kirkguiam; Durant 
FitzChristina Mayby in Kirkonnell. 

And divers other persons gave lands in Cumberland. 
Thus in short time they encreased their possessions to a 
great revenue yearly which maintained a lord abbott and 
monks. They built them a church and the whole scite of 
the abbey of free stone which continued till these our times 
that K. Hen. 8'*^ took down the habitations and made the 
church serve the inhabitants as a parochial church, but 
now the same is also utterly defaced for the steeple lately 
fell down through age and they burnt the church with fire. 
The rectory Q. Mary gave to the University of Oxford. And 
the seignory of Holm Cultrum remaineth yet in the king's 
hands but all the other land and commodities in England 
ai-e sold to strangers by the kings predecessors. 

WiGTON. Wigton was antient demesn of Allerdale till 
Waldew the son of Earl Gospatrick gave that barony unto 
Odard de Logis. It containeth Wigton, Waverton, Blen- 
cogo, Dundraw and Kirkbride, with their appurtenances, 
which live townships are several mannors within them- 
selves known by metes and bounds and lye within the 
barony of Wigton. 

Odardus built Wigton church and endowed the same. 
He lived unto K. John's time. K. Hen. i^* confirmed 
Waldew's grant of the barony to him, by which it appeareth 
probably that he lived above an hundred years. The Earl 
Randulph Meschines gave Staunton to him, and K. Hen. 
i^t gave him Blackhill and Melmerby. He had issue Adam, 


Adam had issue Odard the 2nd whose son and heir Adam 
the snd died without issue, therefore the inheritance came 
to his brother Walter who had issue Odard the 3rd who 
died without issue, and Odard the 4th Hkewise, wherefore 
the brother John de Wigton the son of Walter entered 
and had issue a sole daughter and heir Margaret, who a.d. 
. . . granted the church of Wigton to the abbott and 
convent of Holm Cultrum, which they presently did appro- 
priate to their house in the year of grace 1334. In K. 
Edw. 3''<^^ time Margaret was married to Sir John Denhara * 
Knt and was impleaded for her birth right, and her mother 
Idionsia Lovetot the wife of Sir John de Wigton was for 
a time hindered of her dower. Yet her adversaries did not 
prevail. Wigton barony shortly after her death came to 
Thomas Lucy the . . of that name Lord of Allerdale 
and thereby in right that seigniory of Wigton was extin- 
guished and became again part of the antient barony of 
Allerdale, though it is yet taken and reputed as a manner 
of itself. From the Lord Lucy it thenceforth as other 
lands descended to the Lucies and Earls of Northumber- 
land as appears in the title of Allerdale, and the rest of 
Odard de Wigton's lands to others as appears in other 

KiRKBRlDE. The mannor of Kirkbride contains the 
township of . . . and Oulton a hamlet of the same 
with their appurts. It was first granted forth from the 
barony of Wigton in K. John's time by Adam 2nd Lord of 
Wigton to Adam son of Adam his 2nd son a knight, brother 
to Odard the 2nd. His posterity took the name of their 
mansion house at Kirkbride. The church there founded 
before the conquest was dedicated to the honour of a 
religious Irish woman of great sanctimoney called Brydock 
and corruptly St. Bride, and gave first name to the 
township. The said Adam son of Adam was witness to a 
deed of gift of his cousin Henry the son of Adam de

Waverton made to the monks of Holm Cultrum of lands in 
Waverton, and had issue Richard de Kirkbride : Richard 
had issue Robert whose issue male enjoyed the moiety of 
Kirkbride till it fell to the co-heirs of George Kirkbride 
the last of that house, who transferred his inheritance to 
the Dalstons, Cleburns, and Weddalls that married them.

The Barony of Next unto Allerdale upon the south 
Burgh. side of the river Wathempool or Wat- 

holmpool now Wampol h'es the barony 
of Burgh-by-Sands or Burjrh barony. On the west and 
north-west it is washed by the sea flowing up to the foot 
of the river Eden, and by the said river towards the north 
and north-east unto the city of CarHsle : and from Carhsle 
to the river Wampool on the south-east it is divided from 
Dalston barony by the beaten high street, which leadeth 
from Carlisle through Thursby to Wigton. 

In this barony were divers mannors holden of Burgh, 
and some within the bounder, and yet no part of the 
barony (as Orton and Gamelsby) nor holden of the same. 
Ranulph Bohun* de Meschines gave this barony of Burgh 
to one Robert de Estrivers or Trivers together with the 
chief foresters office in the forest of Englewood ; which 
office with great and many liberties thereunto belonging all 
the Lords of Burgh enjoyed successively untill Thomas de 
Multon de Gilsland forfeited the same by treason com- 
mitted against the King ... in the insurrection made 
by Simon de Montford Earl of Leicester. 

Ibria Trevers daughter to Robert de Trevers and wife

of Burgh to the Engaynes.

by the said Ibria. The said Radulph and Ibria and 
William their son gave Henrickby alias Herriby besides 
Carlisle to the priory of Carlisle which gift Hugh Mor- 
vill confirmed. 

After W™ Engayne succeeded S'' Hugh Morvill (as son 
and heir of Ada sole daughter and heir of the said 
William). In the time of Hen. 2°^ this S"^ Hugh Mor- 
vill was of great possessions. In Cumberland he was 
Lord of Burgh barony Lassonby and Ishall ; in West- 
morland of Temple Sowerby, Hoflun, &c., and about 
Wharton he had diverse lands. The great mountain 
Hugh-Seat-Morvill was called after him. He was one 
of the four Knights who killed S* Thomas a Becket Arch- 
bishop of Canterbury, after which deed he came to great 
misery. He gave therefore the rectory of Burgh to the 
abbey of Holm Cultrum, which the Bishops of Carlisle, 
Bernard, Hugh, and Walter did appropriate to the monks. 
The sword that killed St Thomas was at Ishall in my 
father's time, and since remaineth with the house of Arun- 
del. He was greatly hated of the churchmen of his time ; 
therefore they wrote many things to his dishonour hardly 
to be credited, which I omitt. After great repentance he 
died and left his two daughters his heirs, Johan wife to 
Richard Worun or Gerun, and Ada wife first to Richard 
Lucy second to Thomas Multon and third to W™ Lord 

After S' Hugh Morvill succeeded Richard Lucy and 
Richard Werun, with the daughters of S*^ Hugh in the in- 
heritance of Burgh.

moiety of Burgh fell to the second Thomas Multon afore-

Richard Werun had by his wife Johan Morvill, Sara (or 
Ada) a daughter married to Richard Boyvill Baron of 
Kirklevington who had issue Hawise the wife of Eustace 
of Baliol, which Hawise died without issue, and thereupon 
that moiety of Burgh also descended to Thomas son of 
Thomas of Multon aforesaid, or to Thomas de Multon de 
Gilsland his son the third of y^ name.* 

The second Thomast de Multon married Matilda Vaux 
y^ sole daughter and heir of Hubert Vaux Baron of Gils-

Margaret a child of three years of age his heir, who in the 
40th year of Ed. 3'''^ intailed the land to the heirs male of 
John Radcliff her husband and hers. The remainder to 
Richard their son for life. After to the heirs male of 
Robert, Thomas, Richard and John, sons of the said 
Richard successively. After to the heirs male of John the 
son of Catharine de Cliftley. After to the heirs male of 
John the son of William Ratcliff of Longfield. After to 
the heirs male of Robert the son of William, the son of 
Richard Ratcliff; and after to the right heirs of Margaret 
Daniel the grandmother, for ever. She dyed 44 Ed. 3'''^. 
Afterwards these lands and mannor was sold in the time 
of K. Hen. 6* to the Lord Thomas Dacre father of 
Humphrey by Sir John Savage Knt, in whose blood they 
continue at this day and so are become demesns of the 
Lord Paramount of Burgh, united to the antient seignory 
from whence they were divided by the partition of Sir 
Hugh Morvill's daughters (as is before mentioned) in the 
time of King John. 

The parish contains Gamelsby, Biglands, Wigganby, 
Whitriglees, Drumleyning, Lathes and Wampool. 

Parton. Parton (a mannor and township so called) 
adjoyneth to the west side of Crofton, and is divided from 
the same by a rill called Catt-beck. It lyes between the 
river of Wampool on the south and the Powbeck on the 
north, extended from the Catt-beck unto the Karrs-mouth, 



where the rill called Powbeck falls into Wampool. The 
first Lords thereof after the Conquest took their sirname 
of the place and were called Parton. The eldest hne of 
them by a daughter transferred the inheritance to one 
Richard Mansell whose son and heir John Mansell sold the 
same to Robert Mulcaster, who gave the same to Robert 
de Grinsdale in Hen. 2'^ time. Robert Grinsdale had issue 
Gilbert Grinsdale who had issue Allan and Robert ; Allan 
by his wife Margery had issue Thomas and Henry who died 
without issue of their bodies. Therefore their lands at 
Carliell fell to Sir William de Arthuret Knt in right of 
Marriotte his wife who was their sister and heir general 
after the death of Henry Grinsdale her brother. But Par- 
ton fell to Margaret the wife of Gilbert Pepper or Pipperd 
in Ed. 3"^'^ time, another heir of the Grinsdales, who dying 
without issue for that she was of the half blood her part 
fell to Robert de Grinsdale. Marriotte made John Denton 
of Cardew her heir. And Margaret gave her part to 
Robert Roose her 2nd husband whose nephew and heir 
Richard Roose sold the same to John Carliell parson of 
Kirkland, his brother's son. Robert the son of Robert 
Carliell sold to W"^ Denton the son and heir of John Den- 
ton aforesaid the moiety of Parton, whose posterity in the 
issue male still enjoyeth the same.* 

The manor and town contains the hamlets of Parton 
and Micklethwaite, Whinhow and Whinshill ; and Drom- 
leyning was parcel of the same untill the Lord Paramount 
purchased the same of Thomas heir general to John 
Dalston sometime freeholder of lands in Parton. 

Drumleyning. All Parton is within the parish of 
Thursby saving that of Drumleyning which is in the parish 
of Aikton, and now doth service to the mannor of Aikton. 
It is called corruptly Drumleyning, the right name thereof 

* The moiety of Parton continued in the issue male of the Dentons, till George 
Denton of Cardew, last possessor thereof, sold the same to Sir John Lowther, a.d. 
1686. Gilpin.

is the Myre-Dromble-Heyning ; Wee call a bittern a Myre 
Dromble because she haunteth myres, boggs, fens and carrs, 
and for that she hath a thundering voice which we call 
rumbling. Heyning is the fryth or freed spring of the place. 
A wood new cut for springing, a fryth and spring we call a 
Heyning of the word Heyned which signifies freed or spared 
or forborn. 

Gamelsby and Biglands. Gamelsby is the next town 
to Parton, and stands upon the north side of the river of 
Wampool, between it and the fields of Aikton. It con- 
taineth the two hamlets of Gamelsby and Biglands, which 
Biglands is so called of that kind of grain called beer or 
barley which plentifully grows there, which grain Cumber- 
land men call bigg and thereupon the hamlet is called 

These two hamlets were antiently a manner the chief 
capital house whereof stood at Gamelsby which was so 
called of one Game! that first builded there. It was 
antiently parcel of Burgh and granted forth to one William 
Brewer by the Lords of Burgh, to be holden as part of the 
same of the crown, as the barons held the rest of the king. 
It is called in antient evidences Gamelsby juxfa Aikton, 
therefore not de Aikton nor within the bounds of the same. 
Before Gamel built there, it was a woody waste haunted 
with deer. The next Lord that I read of was one Adam de 
Crookdake who had it by fine of William Brewer : after it 
descended by two daughters to the families of the Raugh- 
tons and of those Boyvills which were Lords of Westlinton, 
and therefore called de Levington or Linton. Raughtons' 
part descended to a daughter named Catherine the wife of 
John Aspilon, a Buckinghamshire man, who sold the same 
to the Warcops, who sold the same to the Crakinthorps or 
Southeraikes, who exchanged the same with the Dentons 
of Cardew for their lands in Skelton. One of the posterity 
of the Dentons sold the same of late to the several inhabi- 
tants and tenants of that part who now enjoy the same. 

BURGH. 75 

And the other moiety the Levingtons' part descended 
long in the heirs male till by a daughter the same was 
transferred to one Alexander Highmore of Harbybrow, 
whose heir sold the same to the Lord Dacres. And it is 
now in the Queen's hands by the attainder of the heir of 
the Dacres. 

Wampool. Wathompool or Wampool lyes next unto 
Biglands and Gamelsby, and is so called of the river Wam- 
pool upon the banks whereof it standeth. The oldest that 
I read of that were Lords of the same was one Robert 
Brunne the son of Radulf who was called Robert de 
Wathompool because he dwelt there. He married Mar- 
garet the daughter and heir of Richard the son of Trute 
Lord of Newby beneath Carliell. She confirmed Newby 
to the abbey of Holm Cultrum, being covert baron, therefore 
Hervey de Wampool,* Robert de Dunbraton, William de 
Feritate and Radulf his brother, were her pledges for 
that assurance. Afterwards Blennerhasset, Dacre, and 
Warwick of Warwick were Lords thereof. Richard War- 
wick heir of the Warwicks' part lately sold the same to 
the inhabitants who are Lords of the freeholds. It is holden 
of the barony of Burgh and was antiently a demesne, but 
is now divided into four tenements, two whereof are War- 
wicks, and Blennerhasset and Dacre have the other two. 
Warwicks' moiety descended from Thomas de Whitrigg 
Knt ; Blennerhassetts' part from William Arthuret Knt, 
heir to Adam de Crofton. 

Whitrigg. Whitrigg or the White Ridge is a great 
long white rigg upon the banks of Wathinpool, and was so 
called of the waste ground there fashioned like a corn rigg. 
It was first inhabited by the Brunes, who were antiently a 
great family ; Whitrigg was the inheritance of Robert de 
Dunbretton so called because he dwelt at Dunbretton, but 

* I read of one Hervy de Wampol et Agnes uxor soror Willielmi Tarraby. 


76 BURGH. 

his sirname was Brun and his posterity were called Whit- 
rigg of this place. Another hamlet belonging to the same 
is called Whitrigg-Lees which was the pasture ground and 
Lee of Whitrigg when it was demesne. 

Lathes. Lathes is a hamlet next unto Wampool, and 
was so called of a grange or farm which the Lord of 
Whitrigg had there. Of that place the family of the 
Lathes took their name, who antiently well nigh the Con- 
quest have enjoyed the same in the issue male untill Adam 
Leathes now owner of the demesne thereof sold the tene- 
ments and residue of the hamlet to the inhabitants. It 
was antiently part of the demesn of Whitrigg, and given 
by Robert the son of Robert de Dunbretton to his kinsman 
Henry,* whose posterity as aforesaid were thereupon called 
de le Leaths. We call a barn for corn a Lath, whereupon 
the place was so called being a very good soil and antiently 
kept in tillage. It is in the parish of Aikton. 

Langcrofts. There is also a hamlet called Langcrofts 
parcel of Whitrigg so called of the long ridges of land 
which lye between the town and Wampool. 

Caerdurnok. Towards the sea coast at the foot of 
Wampool, stands an old village called Caer-durnok, a 
British name which signifies the town of the thorns, of a 
wood there then all of thorns which was long after called 
the Eyen Thorns, or Old Thorns, and now are all wasted 
away. And the place where they did grow stands now a 
village yet called Aynthorn. 

FiNGLAND. There is another village called Finland, 
Fingland and Fennland, which is almost environned with 
a moss and fenny ground. All these were the Brun lands 
and did belong unto and were parcels of their manors of 
Bowness and Drumbugh. 

BowNESS. Bowness is a common name to the manner 
town and parish there. One of the first barons of Burgh 

* Robertus filius Robert! dedit Leathes Henrico fratri suo Hen 3. Gilpin. 

BURGH. 77 

after the Conquest gave the same to Gamel le Brun, It 
containeth, on the north side where the sea floweth up into 
the river of Eden, the town of Bowness itself, Glasson 
Drumbugh and Easton, where the bounder of the same 
crosseth over southward on the east side of Fingland and 
Whitrigg unto Wathempol, and taketh in all the aforemen- 
tioned towns of Whitrigg, Whitrigg-Lees, Langcrofts, 
Fingland, Aynthorn and Caerdurnok, all which make a 
great point of land into the sea, thrusting in between the 
waters of Wampool and Eden. A goodly manner it was 
while entire, but now it is divided into several parts. 

Bowness was antiently called Bulgitim Blatum of the 
Romans, who, as I think, framed this word Bulgiiim of 
a word now in use with us, namely Bulge, which signi- 
fieth a breaking in, as the sea, there swelling, breaks in. 
But where they took the word Blatum I cannot perceive 
unless from that place in Scotland a little from Tordoss 
called Blawtwood, which soundeth the sea swelling or 
bulging in at Blawt. But this name Bowness as some 
have thought was given to the place of this word Noose, 
which the Scots and this country people call Neese, which 
signifies a point of land into the sea : and so they commonly 
call it, and for that the land here makes a crooked point 
into the sea they call it Bow-ness. Others have writ it 
Bowl-ness as a word made of bowling which is swelling, 
and the said word ness a point ; for that often times the 
tide coming with the wind the sea breaks in at the point 
with great fury. 

But however it was called, it was a most antient thing 
and a great building as appeareth by the antient founda- 
tions and paved streets which are daily found in the 
common fields by the inhabitants. It is seated at the 
west end of that memorable work the Picts Wall. 

Drumbugh. The church is placed at Bowness but 
the capital messuage at Drumbogh where the said Gamel 
Brun and his posterity dwelt. It is called Drumbugh of 

78 BURGH. 

that fenny mire or bog, then full of shrubs and haunted 
with bitterns which the people call myre drombles, or mire 
drumnles, so as that word Drumbogh signifies the bitterns' 

Easton. The next town to it is Easton for that it is 
the eastermost town of the manner. 

Glasson. The other hamlet named Glasson was so 
called by the Irish inhabitants for that it is a green on a 
river, Glass in Irish signifying green, and Oon a river. 
It gave name to the family of gentlemen called Glassons, 
some of whose race builded at Glassonby besides Kirkos- 
wold manner, which place was thereupon called Glassonby. 
The last of that name W™ de Glasson, who held Glasson 
of Robert le Brun de la Feritie Lord of Bowness, forfeited 
the same, being outlawed for the death of one Patrick 
Taylor ye 6 Ed. i. 

Brunskeugh. After the aforesaid Gamel le Brun 
diverse of the Bruns were Lords of Bowness successively 
as Robert, Radulf, Robert, Richard &c. One of those 
Roberts and Radulf his father had a mansion house 
without Eden nigh a brush of wood, called therefore Brun- 
nesskeugh or Brunneswood where the town of Brunskeugh 
now standeth. And for that the same is seated towards the 
wild wastes, they were called de Feritate, but their'sirname 
was Brun. Their lands were divided amongst three copar- 
ceners, the daughters and heirs of Richard Brun the last 
Lord of that name. One of them named Helen was 
married to the house of Workington. Another to Har- 
rington of Harrington. And another to Bowet whose 
posterity sold the same to Ellys, who yet enjoyeth the third 
part in Bothill, but hath sold his part in Bowness to 
Robert Graham of the Fald. 

BowsTEAD Hill. The next hamlet to Easton in the 
parish of Bowness is Bowstead Hill, so named of a bow 
of kine there kept for their dairy by the Lords of Burgh. 

Langbergh. And next unto Bowstead Hill is a hamlet 

BURGH. 79 

called Langbergh, so named of this word bergh which 
signifies a rising ground. Both this and Bowstead Hill 
were antient demesne of Burgh, and their pasture ground, 
and now for better strength of the borders are letten forth 
to tenancies. 

DiKESFlELD. And so was a hamlet called Dykesfield 
(without Langbergh), which gave name to the Dykes, a 
family of gentlemen. 

Burgh. Next to Langbergh stands Burgh itself, where 
the barons of Burgh had a capital messuage, the ruins 
whereof are yet seen at the east end of the town. 

And between Burgh and the Sands was a mannor house 
where one Henry de Sands a gentleman held there of the 
barons of Burgh a carucat and an half of land in demesn 
of which place he his ancestors and their posterity took 
their sirname, and were called in old evidences de Sabuloni- 
bus, whose issue male is now Lords of Rottington ; but that 
their mannor house and the lands belonging to the same 
lye now waste and are the pasture ground now belonging 
to the inhabitants of Burgh. But it is yet called the 

WoRMOLBY. Next unto Burgh towards Carliell is a 
little hamlet called Woormolby or Wormondby, so named 
of the first inhabitant there. 

Beaumont. On a fair hill next unto Wormolby is 
Beaumont, a town so named of the fair hill on which it 
stands from whence every way lies a goodly prospect which 
gave occasion of this name. It was anciently a manor 
belonging to the Brunnes Lords of Bowness, who were 
patrons of the church there. But of later times the barons 
of Burgh have bought it of the co-heirs and granted the 
same forth in customary tenancies. 

KiRKANDERS. Next unto Beaumont stands the parish 
and town of Kirkanders, so named of the church there 
dedicated to St. Andrew, which the antient Lords of Burgh, 
as I think, did grant together with the service of the 

8o BURGH. 

manor of Orton unto the barons of Levington and severed 
the same from the barony of Burgh ; for though they lye 
now within the same yet are they not part thereof. And 
upon the next office found by inquisition after the making 
of the statute of Magna Charta in Hen. 3'''' time the 
barons' lands of Levington wheresoever they did lye were 
found to be one barony by the inquisition, as other men's 
lands then were that were holden in capite of the king, 
as Lesingby distant from Burgh six miles yet is found to be 
parcel of Burgh. And Skelton so remote from Kirkleving- 
ton yet is found to be parcel of the same barony of Leving- 
ton. The Lords of Burgh have now annexed Kirkanders 
town again to the barony of Burgh. But Orton is holden 
still of Levington but it lies in Burgh. 

Grinsdale. Next unto Kirkanders lies Grinsdale, a 
parish town and mannor within Burgh barony and holden 
of the same. It gives sirname unto a family of gentlemen 
called Grinsdalls. The most antient of the name that I 
read of was one Udard de Grinsdall, and after him Asketill 
the son of Robert de Grinsdall that lived in the time of 
Hen. i^*, Stephen, and Hen. 2"'^. The eldest line failed 
about King John's time when the inheritance fell to two 
daughters whereof one was married to the Lord of Newton 
in AUerdale. One Thomas de Newton held by that right 
the moiety of Grinsdale of Thomas de Multon Lord of 
Burgh, in Hen. 3'''^ time. And the other moiety was then 
so holden by one William de la Sore, whose ancestor had 
married the other coparcenor. A second bi-other of Aske- 
till called Robert was a citizen of Carliell and purchased 
lands there and in Parton, which descended according to 
the following pedigree untill the coparcenors and their 
heirs sold the same to the Dentons of Cardew, in Hen. 4* 
time, whose issue male enjoyeth the same at this day.

Newton's moiety of Grinsdale fell by marriage to Martin- 
dale, and to one of the Dacres named Richard Dacre in 
the right of his wife one of the co-heirs of Martindale. 
His issue William Dacre and himself for following Leonard 
Dacre in the last rebellion lost the same and now it is in 
the Queen's hands by attainder. The other is Michael 
Studholme's lands son of Richard son of John son of 
Richard son of Michael son of John son of Richard son 
of William, who bought the same of Jo. de Kirkanders 
son and heir of John de Parton & Kirkanders, An. lo

It is called Grinsdale or Greensdale for that the Town- 
field was antiently a low green bottom or dale by the river 
side of Eden. 

Banton magna et parva. Bampton villa Bembce vet 
Banibce is a township within Brough barony. It was the 
principal seat of Hildred de Carliol, a K°* in the time of King 
Hen. 2^^. The township contains Great Banton, Little Ban- 
ton, Ughtredby and Studholm. The rectory lies in Great 
Banton. In the partition of Hildred's estate after his death 
his grandchildren Richard and Robert the sons of Odard 
the son of Hildred parted this manner. Adam son of 
Robert son of Odard son of Hildred dedit medietatem Ecclesics 
Dom Sii Nich. Carliol. And Eudo de Carliell tenant of the 
same ii Hen. 3'''* gave four carucats in Ughtredby and

Orton. Above Grinsdale and Kirkanders more towards 
the south stands Orton or Overton, which name is common 
to the parish mannor and town being so named in respect 
of the situation and higher standing of that place in 
reference to Kirkanders and the lower towns towards Eden 
and the borders of the country. It is parcel of the barony 
of Levington and holden of the same and gave sirname to 
a family of gentlemen of mark called Orton. They gave 
for arms vert a lion rampant argent crowned and armed 
gules. The first of the name I read of was Simon, who had 
issue Alan de Orton to whom K. Hen. ^'^^ granted free warren 
in Orton. After him succeeded John his son (they were 
all Knts), and after him Giles whose daughter and heir 
Johan was wife to Sir Clement de Skelton, to whom he 
had four daughters and heirs ; one named Agnes married 
to the Lighes of Ishall, another named .... married 
to Bellasis, another named .... married to Ridley. 
The fourth named .... married to Blennerhasset. 
They divided the mannor into three parts which Lighe, 
Blennerhasset, and Ridley enjoyed and charged the land 
with a rent of £8 to Bellasis whose heir sold the same to 
one Codall a merchant of Carliell, which Robert Brisko 

son of Leonard a younger brother's son of the Briskos of 
Crofton, enjoyeth in the right of Eleanor his wife, daughter 
of Richard Codall son of John son of John. 

And the mannor is now the inheritance of John Brisco 
of Crofton an infant, son of William, son of John, which 
John the grandfather purchased the Lighs' parts from 
Wilfrid Lawson and Maud his wife, (late wife of Thomas 
Ligh to whom he gave his lands), and of Thomas Blenner- 
hasset of Carlisle another part, and the other third part 
Nicholas Ridley sold to the tenants there, whereof one sold 
his part to Denton of Cardew, another kept his part, and 
the third .... right of patronage of the rectory. The 
residue sold their parts to the said William Brisco the 
infant's father. 

WiGGONBY. Next unto Orton stands Wiggonby, which 
was antiently the Ortons' lands, and as I think parcel of 
Orton. Yet I have seen offices that have found it a man- 
nor of itself. It descended with the Ortons' lands as Orton 
did to the co-heirs. Ligh sold his part to George Porter 
of Bolton. Blennerhasset yet holds his, and Ridley sold 
his part to the inhabitants. 

Crofton. Crofton is the next town and mannor to 
Thursby in the parish of Thursby, and lies betwixt Thursby 
and Parton towards the east and west and between the 
rivers of Wampool and the Pow on the south and north. 
It is called Croft-town of the word Croft, as the town 
standing upon the Crofts. The iirst Lord that I read of 
the same was a Knt, Sir Gilbert the son of Gilbert de 
Dundraw. He gave a parcel of the same to the hospital 
of St. Nicholas of Carlisle, and bounded it out in the place 
called Gillmartinridden. He lived in K. John's time. He 
bound that land to grind at his mill at Crofton. Next 
after him the Lords of Crofton had to their sirname Crofton, 
as John de Crofton,* Robert de Crofton, John de Crofton, 

* MS. John de Crofton, Robert de Crofton, Thomas de Crofton, John de Crofton, 
John de Crofton, Adam de Crofton, Marriott wife of WiUiam de Arthuret and 

§4 BURGH. 

Clement de Crofton. They had lands in Carliell and 
Birkskugh which corruptly is called Bruskowgh and Bris- 
kow. One Isold de Briskow married the heir of Crofton 
whose posterity in the issue male have hitherto enjoyed the 
same. And at this day John Brisco an infant the son of 
William son of John son of Robeit, who was slain at 
Sollom Moss, is Lord thereof. 

They were called de Birkskugh because their first an- 
cestors dwelt at Birkskeugh or Birchwood, a place by 
Newbiggen in a Lordship belonging to the priory of Carliell 
which lands they yet enjoy or part thereof. And when 
Gualo Cardinal of St. Martin in K. John's time, and after 
him Pandolf in Hen. 3'^'* time as legates from the Pope 
made distribution of the lands belonging to the church of 
Carliell between the bishop and the prior which till then 
were holden per indivisum, the said first named John de 
Crofton held the same land in Brisco as a freeholder.*

* It appears by an ancient writing dated (now in the custody of 

John Brisko Esq.,) purporting an arbitrement between then prior 

of Carliol, and Christopher Brisko then Lord of Crofton, that the sd Chr. Brisko 
and his ancestors were Lords of the mannor of Brisko, but that he being taken 
prisoner by the Scots and enforced to pay a great sum of money foi his ransom 
was necessitated for the raising of the same to mortgage his mannor of Brisko to 

prior of Carliol. And afterwards they coming to an account about 

the same, the arbitrators whom they chose to adjust their differences ordered that 
the prior and his successors should enjoy the whole mannor except the capital 
house and best tenement, and that Christopher Brisko and his should have 
liberty to cut wood for building and dig for stones, and have such a proportion of 
the comon if ever after it happens to be improved : and accordingly the Briskoes 
have since enjoyed the sd tenements and messuages (now cantoned into many little 
tenements), and the prior and his successors and now (in their right) the Dean 
Snd Chapter the residue. In the late times when the parliament prevailed agst K.

They give to their arms three greyhounds sable currant 
in a field d'or* which as I think the heralds devised alluding 
to the word Briskugh which in the British tongue implieth 
agility in leaping, from which word the Saxons took the 
word frisk or leap. But their right name is de Birkskeugh. 
These words Skeugh, Scawgh, Shaw, I have seen in antient 
evidences thus differently written yet always importing the 
same viz : a wood ground standing on a hill as this Birk- 
skeugh and Whinnow Shaw their own land, so called in 
old evidences Middleskewgh and Middleskowgh. Three 
pieces of wood land in Dalston called the Skaw, the little 
Skaw and Raysons Skaw, named in old writings Skaugh or

John de Crofton gave lands to the priory of Carliell, his 
seal was a pelican and her young ones in her nest under

of Radulph de Bray, who gave the same to Wilham the 
son of John de RothcHff in the sixth year of King John, 
and in the fifth year of the same King one Adam de Bray 
gave the rectory to John, prior of St. Marys of Carliell, 
who did appropriate the same to the church of Cadiell. 
In the fourth year of K. John Radulph Bray farmed the 
rectory for corn for term of life granted by William then 
priest of RothcHff. In the 33rd year of Hen. 3'''^ William 
de Hardrighall and Matild his wife (William I take to be 
the aforesaid William de RothcHff, and Matild to be a 
daughter of the Brays), did give the mannor to John 
France, to be holden of them and their heirs paying £^ 
per annum rent, as I take it. The same year John France 
redeemed it of John Ludbroke and Johan his wife. The 
land was holden of Burgh 2s. vel unum esperuarhim. 34 Hen. 
3'^'' Gilbert France held the lands by the said service and 
dyed 6 Ed. i"^'. And his son Richard France being under 
age one Michael de Harcla took him and married him to 
his daughter whereof the King seised Michael's lands and 
fined him. In the 22nd year of the said King, the King 
gave the mannor of Rockcliff to Richard Vernon or Gernon 
for his life and to return after him to Richard his son, and 
to Eleanor daughter of Giles Fynes, Richard's wife and 
the heirs of their bodies which mannors the King had of 
Richard Vernon the father's gift. The Frances are named 
in evidences Francoys and Francigense, (which I think 
was so for that the first so named was born in France). 
It may therefore be the sirname was Vernon. Afterwards 
in the 23rd year of K. Edw. 3'''^ Thomas Danyel died seised 
of RothcHff, whose daughter Margaret wife of John Rat- 
cliff intailed the same and her other lands to the Ratcliffs 
and the heirs male of their kindred, an. 40th Ed. 3"^"^ and 
died in the 44th of the same King. And after her posterity 
sold it to the Lord Dacre (and so it became united to the 
barony of Burgh in demesne). 

OuTERBY. Ughtredby Habitatio Ughtredi is the name 

of a little town in Bampton parish in the barony of Burgh, 
the place was so named before the Conquest of one Ughtred 
the first builder there, but what family he was of appears 
not. It was the inheritance of Hildred de Carliell, in 
Hen. 2""^ time and descended as the other lands in Comb- 
quintin to his two grandchildren Richard and Robert, the 
sons of Odard the son of Hildred Lord of Bampton. 
Robert had issue Adam and he Eudo, who ii Hen. ^"^ 
gave to Walter de Bampton, David Marshall, Robert de 
Wampoole and Margaret his wife, sister* and heir to 
Richard the son of Richai^d son of Troite the heir and suc- 
cessor of Richard Carliell four carucats in Ughtredby and 
Little Bampton, two in Combquintin and one in Combers- 
dale in partition of Hildred's lands or satisfaction for their 
parts of the same.

The forest of Englewood is in the midland parts of the 
county and lieth between the rivers of Shawk and Eden 
about 10 miles broad and is extended from Carliell to 
Penrith about i6 miles of length. It abutts upon the 
baronies of Burgh and Allerdale on the west, on the barony 
of Greystock on the south, and upon the river Eden on the 
east and north. By which account it comprehends the 
barony of Great Dalston which is now reputed as part 
thereof, tho' antiently it appears to have been a distinct 
barony. Great Dalston lies on the west of the river Cal- 
dey and takes up most part of that ground which is 
therefore called The Westward viz : of the great forest of 
Englewood, tho' of late it has been used as the name of a 
distinct forest. 
The Barony of Between Burgh barony and the forest 
Great Dalston. of Englewood lies ye barony of Great 
Dalston, which is divided from the 
forest by the river Caldey on the south side, and it reached 
from Carliell unto Welton in Sebergham, where it is divi- 
ded from Sowerby by the river Caldey and taketh in little 
Raughtonfield untill the foot of Rawgh, where Caldey 
bounders it again along great Raughtonfield. 

The Earl Randolph Meschiens first gave this seignory 
to one Robert (that was second brother to Hubert de 
Vallibus first Lord of Gilsland) and his heirs whereupon 
he was called Robert de Dalston. This Robert and his 
issue enjoyed it till K. Stephen gave Cumberland to David 
K. of Scots. And presently after Hen. of England the 
second of that name banishing the Scots seised that barony 
among others and united them to the forest of Englewood 


when Allan de Nevill was chief forester ultra Trent. It 
continued forest from that time during all the reigns of the 
said K. Hen. 2^^, of Rich, x^' and John his sons, and of 
Hen. 3'^'^ John's son until the 14th year of his reign, who 
then first disafforested the same and granted Dalston with 
great priviledges to Walter Malclerk then Lord Treasurer of 
England and Bishop of Carliell, and to his successors 
Bishops there. And at this day Henry Robinsoa Bishop of 
Carliell enjoyeth the same being the 35th Bishop of Carliell

Robert de Dalston brother of Hubert de Gilsland afore- 
said had another brother named Reginald, to whom 
Randolph Meschiens the Earl gave the mannor of Castle 
Sowerby, Carlattan and Hubertby, as appeareth in the 
title of Sowerby hereafter. 

The said Robert de Dalston had issue a son whose pos- 
terity in the eldest line by a daughter transferred the right 
of the seignory of Dalston to the Harckleys wherefore after 
that K. Hen. 3'''^ had granted away the barony to the 
Bishop of Carliell, which his grandfather King Henry 2°*^ 
had seised as an escheat taken from the Scots, one Michael 
de Harckley (father to Andrew Harckley sometime Earl of 
Carliell) did implead Robert Cherry Bishop of Carliell in 
the first year of King Edw. i^' in Michaelmass term for the 
said barony in a writ of right. 

Little Dalston. The same Robert Dalston or some 
of his posterity granted to a younger brother the mannor 
of Little Dalston, whose posterity in the issue male yet 
enjoy the same to this day lineally (for the most part) des- 
cended from father to son and sometimes collaterally from 
brother to brother as appeareth by this true pedigree 
gathered by survey of divers antient evidences yet extant

Cardew. The mannor and town of Cardew in the 
barony of Dalston were antiently called Kar-thew, i.e., palus 
sive mariscus Deorunt and took first name of that great fenny 
ground at the head of the river Wampool now called Car- 
dew-myre and of the antient inhabitants Kar-thew which 
is by interpretation Gods-fenn or Gods-bogg, and so called 
by them because it adjoined to Thursby where the Danes 
had a house or temple of sacrifice, or a publick place 
where those pagans offered up the blood of captives to a 
God t whom in that sort they honoured, as Everardus some- 
time abbott of Holm Cultrum hath registered to posterity 
who lived in the days of K. Hen. 2°'^. 

Cardew was antiently a forest ground as all the rest of 
the barony of Dalston was before it was inhabited, and 
part of the great forest of Englewood and became first in- 
habited in William Rufus or Hen. i^' time. The first 
inhabitant I read of was William who took sirname of the 
place and was called William de Carthew. I read of that 
name likewise one Stephen and one Thomas de Karthew.

The last inheritor sold his patrimoney to one Berrington 
a chaplain, which Berrington gave the same to the Bishop 
of Carliell in trust to the use of John Burdon. John 
Burdon had issue a son called also John Burdon, to whom 
his father gave land to him and the heirs of his body, and 
for default of such issue to John Denton and Joan his 
wife and the heirs of their body, whose issue male hneally 
descended from father to son enjoy the same at this day in 
that right. The said John Denton was Lord also of 
Ainstiblighe and of the forest of Garnerie and Kirkpatrick 
and Agingrey in Scotland, which he had of the gift of 
Edward Baliol King of Scots. His letters patents thereof 
were sealed in the Isle of Eastholm. The said John 
Denton was the steward of all Annerdale,* under the Lord 
Humphrey de Boayl Earl of Hereford and Essex Lord 
High Constable of England, to whom the said Edward 
Balioll or John BalioU his father gave the whole seignory 
of Annerdale which was antiently the Bruces' lands. The 
said John Denton deserved so well in those wars between 
the BaHolls and the Bruces competitors for the crown of 
Scotland that Baliol (then King) preferred him to that forest 
late the Bishops of Glascow's lands and to Kirkpatrick 
late the lands of Sir James Frissold adhoerents to the 
Bruces' faction. And the Earl of Hereford preferred him 
to the stewardship of Annerdale, the principal office in 
that seignory for that he first entered the same and held it 
to the Earl his master's use in despite of the Bruces' 
faction. And when Baliol was banished Scotland he kept 
still the principal house till it was fired under him, beaten 
and undermined till it was ready to fall, whereupon his 
heirs give now in remembrance thereof for their crest a 
castle or tower sable, flames issuing out at the top thereof 
and a demi-lion rampant with a sword in his right paw 
issuing out the flames. t

Sebergham. Sebergham is so called of the place where 
it stands which is a hill or rising ground in the forest of 
Englewood, which of the west side was woodland and dry 
ground, but the north-east side a wet spungy earth covered 
with rushes which the country people called selves, and 
thereupon the place was called Seevy-Bergh. Before it 
was inhabited it was a forest and a great waste and wilder- 
ness at ye Conquest. After in the latter end of Hen. z"'^ 
time one William Wastall or de la Wastdale, began to 
inclose some parts of it. He was an hermit and had lived 
there to an extreme age by the labour of his hands and 
fruit trees which he planted. He came thither in Hen. i^' 
time and died about the end of K. John's time or in the 
beginning of K. Hen. 3'^'^. King John granted him the hill 
and he left it to the prior of Carliell. The hermit's grant 
was afterwards confirmed by certain bounds under the seal 
of the King of Scots to whom the King of England had 
given divers parts of the county in frankmarriage. 

William Wastall had a chapell there where the church 
now stands and a little cell, but after his death the prior 
let all forth to tenants and farmers and enlarged ye church 
and made it parochial and the place a village now called 
Villa de Sebergham & Langholm which is a long dale and 
low holme by the river of Cawdey now also inhabited 
and parcel of the forest, and first enclosed as purpresture by 
the foresters the Raughtons, and others since the Conquest 
and are now and of long time have been so named and as 
one township whereof ye Kirthwaits are parcel. 

Carlisle. In the north-west corner of the forest of 
Englewood stands the antient city of Carliell, environed 
with the rivers Eden on the north-east, Petterell on the 
south-east, and Cawdey on the south-west, and inclosed with 
strong walls of squared stones, fortified with a castle ram.- 
pired in the west end and the citadel in the east. It was 
before the Saxons time called Luguvallum or Luguballum 
and by some Lugubalia, whereupon the Saxons called it 


Luell or Luwall, and the last Brittons there inhabitants and 
the Irish of that word Luell named it Carluell or Leyll. It 
lay waste for the most part of 200 years before the last 
Conquest saving a few cottages among the ruins inhabited 
by Irish Scots. After the Danes had wasted the country 
with fire and sword William Rufus returning that way from 
Alnwick where he had made peace with King ... of 
Scotland, seeing the place to be of strength convenient to 
entertain his forces at any time against Scotland, com- 
manded the same to be reedified and to be so fortified with 
walls and with a castle. This was about the latter end of 
his reign, but he was prevented by an untimely death 
before he could perform all which he intended for the good 
of the city. Yet he placed there a colony of Dutchmen 
which were shortly thence translated into the Isle of 
Anglesey by him or his next successor Henry Beauclerk 
his brother, and instead of them a new regiment of southern 
men of Essex, Kent, Middlesex and other parts of the 
realm were brought to supply their place and to inhabit 
the counties of Cumberland and Westmorland, under the 
leading of Ranulph de Meschiens sister's son to Hugh 
Lupus or Loup first Earl of Chester. When the city was 
replenished with people, for to maintain better policy in the 
same, and to inform the people, instead of a nunnery which 
had been there before (and which William Rufus had 
translated thence and established at Ainstaplighe, or rather 
in recompence of the lands to that nunnery belonging had 
founded another at Ainstaplighe endowing the same with 
other revenues there), K. Hen. i^' founded a college of 
secular priests in the 2nd year of his reign and made Athel- 
wald his confessor or chaplain (prior of St. Botolphs) first 
prior of Carliell, dedicating the church to the honour of the 
blessed Virgin Mary, and endowing them with the tiths of 
the churches then founded in the forest of Englewood. 
But being hindred by the tumults and troubles of his time 
he could not perfect all things before the 33rd year of his 


reign, and then strucken with grief for the loss of his 
children that were drowned coming from Normandy, by 
the council of the prior Athelwald and to please God for 
his sins (as he thought) he erected a bishop's see at 
Carliell, and made the said Athelwald first bishop thereof, 
whom the Archbishop of York named Thurstan did con- 
secrate in the year 1133. And in his stead another chaplain 
of the said King Henry named Walter was made the 
second prior of that house who a little before his election 
had taken upon him by the king's licence a religious habit 
that of a regular canon there, which order of canons the 
King and Bishop Athelwald had placed in that house, 
banishing the secular priests immediately upon his conse- 
cration. The said Walter gave to the church of Carliell 
for ever in pure alms his lands in Lynstock, Richardby, 
Crosby, Little Crosby, Walby, Brunskewgh,Carleton, Little 
Carleton and the wood and the churches and rectories of 
St. Cuthbert in Carlisle, and Staynwiggs, (which the King 
had given him) and the same gift was confirmed unto them 
both by the King and Bishop Athelwald. 

The rectory of St. Cuthbert in Carliell was founded by 
the former inhabitants of CarHell before the Danes over- 
threw the city, and by them dedicated to the honour of St. 
Cuthbert of Duresm, who of antient times was Lord of 
the same for 15 miles about Carliell. At the first founda- 
tion of the church every citizen offered a piece of money, 
a coin of brass then current which they buried under the 
foundation of the church steeple there, as was found to be 
true at the late new reedifying of St. Cuthbert's steeple 
An. Dom. ... for when they took up the foundation 
of the old steeple they found well near a London bushell 
of that money. 

After the said priors Athelwald and Walter succeeded 
John who gave Watercroft in Flemby to the Lord of 
Workington, Thomas son of Gospatrick, and after John 
Bartholomew, who in the time of Bishop Hugh confirmed 


Orton in Westmorland to the prior of Conyshead. After 
him Radulf was prior who confirmed the impropriation of 
the rectory of Burgh to the abbey of Holm Cultrum in the 
time of Walter Bishop of Carlisle. The rest follow in 
this ensuing catalogue of the priors of Carliell.

drowned with the king's children) Ranulph Meschiens 
removed to Chester and was Earl thereof. Presently after 
K. Hen. i^' dyed and K. Stephen usurping the state gave 
the county of Cumberland to David K. of Scots to procure 
his aid against Hen. 2""^ right heir to the late king, as son 
to Maud the Empress daughter and sole heir to Hen. i^'. 
But ye Scots secretly favoured him for his rights sake and 
for that he had made the said Henry FitzEmpress Knt at 
Carliell. Yet accepting the gift of the county whereunto 
he pretended his own right (before granted to his ancestors 
by the Saxon kings), he made his eldest son Henry Fitz- 
David Earl of Huntington and Carliell, which Henry 
founded the abbey of Holm Cultrum in the time of K. 
Stephen, his father David confirming the grant of the 
revenues wherewith he endowed that house and so his son 
Malcolumb K. of Scotland after David. After Henry Fitz- 
David was dead and K. Stephen, K. Henry FitzEmpress 
took Carliell and the county from the Scots and granted to 
the city the first liberties I hear of that they enjoyed after 
the Conquest. But his charter was burned by a casual fire 
that happened in the town, which defaced a great part of 
the same and all the records of antiquity of that place. 

At the repairing the city in William Rufus's time it was 
divided into streets as at the present without any great 
alteration. In the great street now called Abbey Gate 


were placed the Irishmen, who dwelt there in cottages 
when it was waste, which street was then thereupon called 
Vicus Hibernensium, and the port or gate at the end of 
that street is called the Irish Gate. In the street now 

called were the Frenchmen or Normans 

placed and therefore it was then called Vicus Francorum. 
The other streets were called Vicus Richardi of the gate 
leading to Richardby, Vicus Bochardi of the port and gate 
leading to Bochardby, Vicus Castri of the castle standing at 
the end thereof. In these three last and other most com- 
mendable places of the city leading to and nigh the market 
place and churches dwelt the chief and best citizens, natural 
Englishmen. In the surburbs of the city beyond Caldew 
towards Caldcotes* or Caldew cottages and towards Dais- 
ton in Shadwinggate dwelt the remnants of the Flemings, 
whereupon that street was called Vicus Flandrensis. In 
the lowest place of the city were placed the fish shambles 
Vicus piscatorum, in the head whereof then stood the flesh 
shambles or butcher's row, Vicus Carnificum. In the 
middle the market place. On the south side the priory.

tance of one Bochard a Fleming one of those that iirst

of his house at Carliell, and when the Flemings went to 
Anglesea in Wales he left that patrimoney to Guy the 
forester, with his daughter Isold. To this Guy the hunter 
K. Hen. i*"' confirmed Bochardby to hold the same by 
cornage paying yearly 6s. 2d. to the cornage silver to the 
king. It is gildable and vicontiel and gives aid with Comb- 
quinton to the Sheriff yearly 4s. /\d. turn silver. It lineally 
descended in the issue male unto William the son of 
Otho, or Odon son of Ralph son of Guido the Hunter of 
Bochardby. This William lived in the time of K. John 
and held the manner of him. Then William* de Bochardby 
and Adam de Bochardby descended of younger brothers 
held parts of the same. In the 12th year of K. Hen. 3'''^ 
Radulph the son of said William de Bochardby entered to 
the seignory. His sisters Alice, Pavy, and Agnes were his 
heirs. Alice and Agnes gave their parts to Jakoline le 
Blonde of Carliell, and Pavy her part to Adam Leger her 
son and to William son of Ivo. The five daughters of

Blackhill. Blackball or Blackbill, commonly called 
Bleckell, is tbe name of tbe town and mannor, so called 
of old before it was inbabited, being a black heathy ground 
part of tbe antient forest of Englewood and given by Hen. 
i^' to Odard de Logis baron of Wigton and citizen of 
Carliell, after tbe Flemings were thence translated. Odard 
first builded there and planted habitations, holding part in 
demesne and the residue in service some free which he 
granted forth to be holden freely, others in bondage and 
villanage, some both persons and land, some land only, let 
to free men, the persons in that age called Brings and the 
tenure in law is called Drengagium.* 

Bleckhill thus made a mannor by Odardus and his pos- 
terity descended by his issue male according to the pedigree 
of Wigton until the time of Ed. 3'''* when Margaret de 
Wigton sole daughter and heir of Sir John de Wigton Knt 
(last issue male of the eldest son of that house) to defend 
her birthright was glad to give away the mannors of 
Bleckhill, Melmerby and Stainton, to Robert Parving the 
King's sergeant-at-law for her strength at the common 
law, the rectory of Wigton to the Abbey Holme for the 
civil law, and Wigton itself to the Lord Anthony Lucy for 
his help in the country, because her mother Idyonsay 
Lovetot was bitterly taxed of incontinency at the instance 
of Sir Richard Kirkbryde next heir male apparent to the 
land. But Margaret de Wigton reserved an estate in all 
things (but the rectory) to the heirs of her body and died 
without issue. Therefore Bleckhill fell to Sir Robert 
Parving who married Dame Katherine the sister of the

said Kirkbride K°' to Adam Parving als. Peacock the 
son of John Peacock who married Johan one of the 
daughters and co-heirs of the said Robert Parving. After 
Adam it descended in the blood of the Parvings some few 
descents, untill Margaret the wife of Tho. Boyt and Wm. 
Boyt his son descended of the said Johan. And Matild 
Walker daughter of Alice Atwood and Thomas Whitelock- 
man son and heir of Margaret Pape daughters and heirs 
to Eme wife of John Scaleby, the other daughter and heir 
of the said Robert Parving, sold the same to William 
Stapleton and Marriotte his wife of whom the Lord Dacre 
purchased it. 

Aglionby. The mannor of Agillunby (corruptly called 
Aglionby), was first so called of one Agillun that came 
into England with the Conqueror, and into Cumberland 
under Radulph Meschiens. He gave name to the place of 
his dwelling house, calling his chief seat or capital dwelling 
Agillunby, Agillun's building. His alliance to the house of 
Warwick or attendance under them (or under the abbott 
of York and prior of Wetheral), preferred him to that 
place of his dwelling and first seat which successively they 
have holden from the Conquest, and their heirs males do 
so at this day without any great difference or alteration of 
their first estate by rising or fall. In success of time they 
withdrew themselves into Carliell and let their mannor 
into tenancies, which is now become a township and is 
holden of Warthwick. Their first ancestor was called 
Walter Agillun, he had issue Everard, Lawrence and 
Werry. Werry had issue Elias and he Allan father of 
William who had issue Adam. John his son had issue 
another Adam from whom the inheritance descended unto 
Thomas and to his posterity successively viz : William, 
Thomas, John, Thomas, Edward, John, Edward and 
Edward now an infant.

same to his second son William son of Odard (and to Osbert 
his heir Chorkby), Osbert the elder brother died without 
issue, therefore William became Lord of all. He had 
issue John and Robert and diverse other children whom 
he preferred, John his eldest son held Warthwick and let 
his brother Robert have Chorkby. He is named in old 
evidences John son of William son of Odard.

Wederhall. The cell of Wederhall was first founded 
at the instance of Stephen first abbot of St. Mary's at 
York, in the first year of William Rufus a.d. 1086 by the 
Earl Randulph Meschiens who gave his manner of Weder- 
hall to the said Stephen with other lands thereunto 
belonging in pure alms to the abbey of York. Stephen 
dedicated the same to God and St. Mary and to St. Con- 
stantine and gave all such things as the said abbey held 
in Westmorland and Cumberland to the said cell or priory 
of Wederhall, as the fishing in Eden and the mill there, 
the two churches of St. Lawrence and St. Michael in 
Apulby, all of the gift of the Earl Randulph Meschiens

CoMBQUiNTiN. The mannor of Combquintin was at 
the Conquest the lands of Hildred a K°', to whom the 
Earl Randolph gave the same and William Rufus and 
Henry Beauclerk. A great signory and also large posses- 
sion on the east side of the river Eden. He dwelt at 
Carliell and was afterwards called Hildredus de Carliell,* 
he left that sirname to the antient family of Carliells who 
were Knights successively untill Ed. i^' time, when their 
chief seated himself in Scotland, at Kinmoont, when Ed. 
i^' invaded Scotland. At which time he sold most of his 
lands here in England. His name was Wm. Carliell ; of 
him the barons Carliell in Scotland are lineally descended, 
whose heir male of the eldest issue ended of late in my 
time and his living is fallen to a daughter, but there are

yet a great number of that sirname both in England and 

Hildred had issue a son named Odard who died in his 
father's lifetime, therefore Combquintin descended to his 
hephews and grandchildren Richard Carliell and Robert, 
between whom their grandfather divided his lands. And 
this mannor to make the partition equal was divided into 
two moieties, which till this present time is not yet united, 
for the Skeltons enjoy one part, the Agillunbies another. 
And the Dean and Chapter of Carliell a piece, which part, 
the cell of Wederhall purchased in Ed. y^ time of Robert 
Parving who bought it of Edmond Combquintin. 

Raughton and Gaitskaill. Raghe is the name of a 
river which taking his rise at . . . runneth headlong 
by Thistlethwait, Stockhillwath and Gaitskale, where it is 
received into Cawdey. The Raghe is a word which signi- 
fieth running. The village Raughton now standing on the 
hill side there (whose fields adjoyning make the east banks of 
Raghe at the foot of the river) doth take name thereof. And 
the hamlet Gaitskail was at first but a whinny place where 
the inhabitants of Raughton made skales and shields for 
their goats, which pastured on the blossoms of whins there, 
though now it is inhabited and converted into tillage mea- 
dow and pasture. About the Conquest it was forest and 
waste ground untill a great purpresture was there inclosed 
by one Ughtred son of ... . and entered to the K. 
(William Rufus) to be holden in fee farm and by sergeantry 
for keeping the aieries of hawks which bred in the forest of 
Englewood for the King. And then the Raughtons gave 
the sparrow hawk for their cognizance. And these arms 
were born by the Raghtons viz : by John Raghton and 
"William his brother in Ed. 3'^'^ time. Their first ancestor 
Ughtred aforesaid had issue Roger, Richard and William, 
whose issue successively were called to their sirnames of 
Raghton of the place where they dwelt. Roger gave part 
of his lands to his brethren there, and every one of them 
increased his possessions within the forest of Englewood 


by renting purprestures to the King at Sebergham, Raugh- 
ton, Gaitskail, Brekenthwait, and elsewhere. One of 
their posterity gave Little Raughton Field to the Bishop 
of Carliell. The last of Roger's name gave the mannor 
of Raughton to Margaret Stapleton his wife and her heirs, 
for want of issue between them. Thereupon Wiljiam 
Stapleton of Edenhall became heir to her part of Raugh- 
ton, and by the heir general of the Stapletons it fell to the 
Musgraves who enjoyed the same till Humphrey Musgrave 
sold it to the tenants in fee. 

Skelton. Skaletown (villa ad Scalingas), now called 
corruptly Skelton, is a village in the forest of Englewood 
in that place where of antient time the country people that 
had their swine, sheep, and milch beasts adgisted in the 
forest, had certain shields and little cottages to rest in, 
whilst they gathered together the summer profit of such 
goods. And about the time of K. Hen. i^' the Boyvills 
then Lords of Levington first planted a habitation there 
for themselves and afterwards set some tenants there. In 
their possession it continued in the heirs male untill the 
death of Radulf de Levington. And his daughter and 
heir Hewise wife of Sir Eustace Baliol Knt dying without 
issue of her body, the Boyvills' lands in Levington, Kirk- 
anders and Skelton, were divided amongst the six sisters 
of Radulf Levington, aunts and next heirs to the said 
Hawise for the seignory thereof. Howbeit their father 
Richard de Levington and his ancestors had given forth 
before that descent divers parts of the same to them and 
others in frank marriage to whom it descended. 

The purparty of Euphemia wife of . . . Kirkbride 
continued in her blood six descents and then Walter Kirk- 
bride sold it to Robert Parving. Sir Adam Parving, sister's 
son to Robert, sold it to John Denton of Cardew and his 
posterity enjoyed it four descents untill they sold it to the 
Southaiks, who held it three or four descents and now John 
Southaik hath sold it to the land tenants and customary 


The second part fell to Margary the wife of Robert de 
Hampton, whose nephew and grandchild William Loc- 
hard son of Simon Lochard, sold the same to John Seaton 
whose son and heir forfeited his right to King Edw. i=* 
and the said King gave it to Robert Clifford, in whose 
blood it continued till George now Earl of Cumberland 
sold it to the inhabitants. 

The third portion was allotted to Isabel the wife of Patrick 
Southaik, son of Gilbert son of Gospatrick of Workington 
from which Patrick it descended to John Southaik who 
sold it to the customary tenants there. 

The fourth part one Walter Corry held in the right of 
Eva his wife, but their son and heir taking part with 
Robert Bruce and the Scots against the King of England 
forfeited his estate, which the King granted to one William 

The fifth co-heir Julian the wife of Patrick Triumpe had 
issue another Patrick Triumpe who sold that part to 
Robert Tillioll Knt. 

The sixth portion fell to Agnes the wife of Walter Twin- 
ham Knt, who had issue Adam father to Walter the 
younger, and he sold it to Walter Kirkbride. 

Newton Reigny. Newton Reigny is a mannor and 
village in the forest of Englewood. It is called Regny of 
William de Reigny sometime owner of the same. In the 
33rd year of K. Hen. 2""^ William de Regny was impleaded 
in a writ of right by one William de Lascells for a K"'^ 
fee of land in Newton Reigny, sed non prcsvaluit for John 
Reigny succeeded after William his father 4 King John, 
and William his son after him who died 4 Ed. i^*. Then 
the inheritance fell to four sisters Elizabeth or Isabel 
wife of . . . Horsley a fourth part, Nicholas de Walton 
a fourth part, Robert Kirkby and John a fourth part, and 
Hugh Littlecomb and Johan his wife and Robert Bruce 
and Alice his wife the other fourth. But all their estates 
were in Robert Burnell Bp. of Bath for in the i8th Ed. i^' 


he gave the manner by fine unto Hugh de Lowther who 
died 10 Ed. 3''"^ and left Sir Hugh Lowther his son and 
heir his successor in the 44th year of Ed. 3'^'^. Sir Hugh 
the son dyed and left Hugh Lowther his son by Margaret 
his wife his heir. After him succeeded Robert Lowther* 
who died 8th Hen. 6"^, and after Robert Lowther entered

and adjoyning to the south side of the 
forest of Englewood lies the barony of Graystock, which 
contains all that part of the county above the said forest 
between the seignory of Penrith and the manner of Castle- 
rig towards Keswick. The barony the Earl Randolph 
Meschiens gave to one Lyolf or Lyulphe, and K. Hen. i^' 
confirmed the same to Phorme the son of the said Lyolph

Beyond the river Eden on the east side thereof lyes a 
great tract of land which (together with Edenhall on the 
west side of the said river) were given to Adam the son 
of Sweine a potent man in those days, and to Henry 
the son of Sweine his brother, and for sometime kept up 
the reputation of distinct baronies, but soon after a great 
part thereof reverting to the crown, and the rest by several 
mean conveyances being divided amongst several families, 
it lost that reputation and is now to be looked upon as 
distinct estates which have little or no dependance one 
upon another. 

CuLGAiTH. Culgaith and other lands in Cumberland 
beyond Eden were given or confirmed by K. Hen. i^' to 
Adam son of Sweine son of Ailrich, to be holden by cornage 
Reddendo de Cornagio £5 12s. 6d. Regi. Adam's two daugh- 
ters named Annabell and Matild were married to Alexander 
Crenquer and Adam de Montebegon. Annabel was wife 
afterwards to William de Nevill by whom she had issue 
Thomas de Burgo, or a daughter to him married ; and 
Thomas had issue another Thomas de Burgo who gave 
to the monks of Brecton or confirmed to them his right 
to those lands which William Nevill his grandfather and 
Annabell his wife gave to them and which Adam the son 
of Sweine gave them before. The said Thomas de Burgo 
the younger gave to Simon son of Walter and Sara his 
wife diverse of the lands by fine in the 7* of King John. 
In whose time Roger de Montbegon, Simon son of Walter, 
and Alexander de Nevill held the lands in Cumberland 
that were the inheritance of Adam son of Sweine. The 


said Roger de Montbegon was son to Adam Montbegon 
and to Matild* his wife aforesaid. They had issue also 
Clementia a daughter married to . . . . de Longviller 
who as I think was heir to Roger her brother. 

In the i6th year of K. Hen. 3'''^ one WilHam son of John 
by fine gave the moiety of Culgaith to one Gilbert or 
Galfrid de Nevill and to Mabell the wife of G . ... 

In the sixth year of the next King Ed. i'^* Michael de 
Hartcla father to Andrew de Harcla the Earl of Carliell 
held the moiety of Culgaith, and Walter Mulcaster and 
Gilbert son of Robert Hawkesley the other half. Andrew 
Harcla's part was forfeited by treason in Ed. 2°*^ time. 
The residue became the lands of Sir Christopher Morisby. 
In the 28th Ed. 3'''^ he died thereof seised, from whom it 
descended to Lady Knevet the heir general to the Picker- 
ings and Morisbies who sold the same to Henry Crekinthorp 
of Newbiggen Esq., and the lands to four feoffees who 
assigned to the tenants. 

Blenkerne. Blenkarn was parcel of the barony of 
Adam the son of Sweine and William de Nevill's lands at 
the first, but afterwards it was granted forth in frank 
marriage and became freehold holden of the heirs of Adam 
and William Nevill ; and some part in frankalmoign granted 
to the priory of Carliell. 

In the time of K. John and before, the Thursbies of 
Thursby held a moiety, and the Whitbies the other moiety. 
In the nth of K. Hen. f^ Evon de Vipont and Sybill 
(filia Adce) his wife gave six bovats in Blenkarne to Bernard 
Thuresby, and her lands in Ainstable and Waverton ; all 
which William Boyvill had in possession in his own right 
as heir to the Thursebies in the 6th year of Ed. i^*. 
He granted part thereof to the priory of Carliell which the 
Dean and Chapter there yet hold. The residue descended 
to Edmund Boyvill his second son, who sold it to John 

* Matilda was afterwards wife to John Mansoild. Gilpin. 


Hartcla. His brother Andrew Hartcla Earl of Carliell did 
forfeit it to the King, who granted it to Wilham Enghsh 
father to William brother to Julian the wife of Ralph 
Restwold mother to William Restwold father to Richard 
Restwold whose heirs sold it to . . . Lough. 

Skirwith. Skirwith was parcel of the said barony. 
In the time of K. John one Jordan Spiggornell had free- 
hold there and others, but the first that I read of that held 
the township as mesne Lord thereof was Robert son of 
Walter whom I take to be one of the Lancasters, he held 
it in Edw. i^' time, and in the latter end of the reign of K. 
Hen. 3'''^. Afterwards one John Lancaster de Holgill was 
owner and died seised thereof in the 8th of Edw. 3'''^^ reign 
and held the same of Thomas de Burgh, then one of the 
heirs of the great barony or seignory of Adam son of 
Sweine aforesaid. From John Lancaster it descended to 
his cousin and heir Richard son of Richard Place, whose 
heir gave it by fine to one William Lancaster, whose heir 
general married to John Crakinthorp father to William 
Crakinthorp father to John, whose three daughters and 
heirs were married to Hutton of the Forest, Sandford of 
Askham, and Middleton. Afterwards the Middletons were 
Lords thereof. And now Hutton son of Thomas of Hutton 
in the Forest and of . . . Middleton his wife daughter 
and one of the co-heirs of ... . Middleton enjoyeth 
the same in his mother's right, that is a part : and the rest 
by purchase of the coparceners. 

MelMorby. Melmorby Habitatio ad planitiem magnani 
is the name of the town parish and capital messuage there, 
now the dwelling house and seat of ... . Threlkeld 
Esq. It lies between Gamelsby and Ulnesby and was 
parcel of the barony of Adam son of Sweine. In the 
reign of Hen. 3'''^ Odard then Lord of Wigton dyed seised 
thereof, after whose death his son Walter de Wigton, John 
son of Walter, and Margaret sole daughter and heir of the 
said John and Dyonisia Lovetot his wife, were successively 


Lords thereof. Margaret was married to two husbands, 
John Denom, K"', and John Weston, K"t, by whom she 
had no issue. She gave Melmorby to Sir Robert Parving, 
K"', the Kings Sergeant-at-law and Blechill also. After 
Sir Robert his sister's son Adam son of John Peacock, 
who named himself Adam Parving; he died 4 Ric. 2°*^ and 
then Henry de Threlkeld entered to Melmorby in which 
family of the Threlkelds it hath ever since continued in the 
issue male. 

AiNSTABLE. Ainstaplighe is a mannor and township 
on the south side of Gilsland divided from that barony by 
Northskeugh Beck and reacheth from the river Eden on 
the west up eastward into the mountains and bordereth 
upon Staffold Lordship toward the south. It containeth 
Ainstaplighe, Rucroft, and the Nunnery, which Nunnery 
was founded by William Rufus. 

This seignoi"y and other lands in Cumberland K. Henry 
i^* gave to Adam the son of Sweine aforesaid, from whom 
it descended in K. Hen. 2""^ time to William de Nevill, 
whose lands in Cumberland in the reign of K. John were in 
the holding of Roger Montebegon, Simond son of Walter, 
and Alexander de Nevill. In K. Hen. 3'''^ time Ainstable 
Lordship became the inheritance of John Mussey, Henry 
Terriby, Michael de Valle son of David, and others about 
the year of our Lord God 1239. ■^"'i i" the latter end of 
that King's time William Boyvill of Thursby, Knt, was Lord 
thereof and held the same of Richard Nevill. When he 
dyed it fell to his son John Boyvill, whose brother Edmund 
sold Ainstapligh to Andrew Harcla who forfeited it to the 
King, who gave it to others and from them to John Den- 
ton of Cardew, son to Sir Richard Denton whose posterity 
William and John Denton enjoyed it as Lords thereof suc- 
cessively from father to son untill Thomas Lord Dacre

extorted it from the said last John Denton in the time of 
Hen. 6"" for that the said John Denton was towards the 
party of K. Edw. 4*. Which tyranny of the Dacres God 
seemed to revenge, for shortly after the said Lord Dacres 
and Randal his son were both slain at Towton Field or 
drowned in the river at Ferrybriggs in Yorkshire, where 
K. Ed. got the victory against Hen. 6* and thereby the 
crown of England. Afterwards the Lord Humphrey Dacre 
by marrying with Dame Mabel Parr daughter of the King's 
favourite recovered the Dacres land and still kept Ainsta- 
phgh by his father's pretended right, and so did his posterity 
untill all their lands fell to the crown by attainder. 

Langanby. Langwathby villa sive habitatio Waldeofi 
longi. It is called in the records at Westminster Long- 
Waldeof-by where it is also recorded that K. Hen. i^' gave 
it to Henry son of Sweine together with Edenhall. How- 
beit this town did not long so continue with him nor his 
posterity, for the King shortly after held it as Regium 
Dominicum. King John had possession of it. Henry ^^'^ 
gave it to Alexander King of Scots in part of ^£"200 land 
granted to the Scots 1237 i^ the 21st year of his reign by 
composition for the release of Cumberland and Northum- 
berland, and other things in demand. The Kings of Scots 
enjoyed it till John Balliol forfeited his lands, thenceforth 
they did continue till Ric. 2°"^ time in the crown. He 
granted those in Cumberland to Radulph Nevill Earl of 
Westmorland and Johan his wife and the heirs of their 
bodies, whose grandchild Richard Earl of Warwick did 
forfeit them to Ed. 4* who granted them to the Duke of 
Gloucester his brother afterwards King by the name of 
Rich. 3'^'^. And ever since this and the rest have continued 
Regium Dominicum. 

Edenhall.* Edenhall Aula ad Rivum Eden as aforesaid 

* Edenhall is now (1687) in the possession of S^ Richard Musgrave Bart, (son 
of Sr Philip Musgrave Bart.) for life, with the remainder to his issue male, and for 
default of such issue, with the remainder over to Sr Christopher Musgrave, Knt., 


was given to Henry son of Sweine second brother of Adam. 
It stands on the west side of the river, and in the forest 
of Englewood. It is now the inheritance of the best house 
and family of the Musgraves whose ancestor Thomas 
Musgrave had it by the marriage of William Stapleton's 
second daughter and co-heir in the time of Hen. 6*. And 
before that the Stapletons held it from the first year of 
Ed. 3'^'^ for five descents. It came to them by the marriage 
of Julian one of the two daughters and co-heirs of Robert 
Turpe, whose father Adam Turpe was but a child of seven

OwsBY. Vlnesby als. Ousby but rightly Vlfsby, Habi-

second son of the said Sr Philip. Their estate having' been formerly reduced to a low • 
ebb, is considerably advanced of late, and is Hke to receive a great improvement 
yet if it come (as 'tis likely), into the hands of Sr Christopher Musgrave or his heirs. 

Their original estate was Musgrave in the County of Westmorland, from which 
they took their sirname, and Bewley Castle in that county. 

There were severall considerable branches of this family, some whereof (as the 
Musgraves of Fairbank and the Musgraves of Crokedaik) are now extinct, but 
the family of Haton, another branch sprung from that house is still continued in

OWSBY. 131 

Olave (whom the people commonly called Vlf), a Dane or 
Norwegian, that after the spoil of the country by the 
Danes (before the conquest of England by the Normans) 
seated himself there under the edge of the east mountains. 
He was one of the three sons of Haldan, the other two 
were Thorquell and Melmor : Melmor and this Vlf were 
placed in this part of the country, and Thorquell at Thor- 
quellby near Keswick. The posterity of Vlf were called 
Vlfnesbies of this place, as the place itself took name of 
his first building there. It seems near the Conquest to 
have been parted between two sisters, and shortly after a 
moiety thereof betwixt four sisters ; for in the time of Hen. 
3'^'^ one Julian Falcard and William Armstrong held the 
moieties, and Henry le Sergeant and Patrick de Vlnesby 
held eight parts, and the rest by alienations broken in 
small parcels, whereof some were given to Lanercost, 
some to the prior of St. John of Jerusalem, and others in 
frank marriage and many small purchases. But William 
Armstrong's part descended four descents and then was 
given to Clement Crofton and Johan his wife by Adam 
Armstrong who gave a third part thereof to Roger Sal- 
keld and John lieauchamp. And Thomas Worship gave 
to John Raghton and he to Roger Salkeld an eighth part. 
Salkeld's part descended by Alice and Margaret his daugh- 
ters and heirs to their husband's children, John Cracken- 
thorp and Thomas Plumland. And John Crofton the son 
of Clement gave the other two third parts to William 
Threlkeld and Katherine his wife. 

Glassonby and Gamelsby. Glassonby beyond Eden 
was first named Glass-oon by the Irish inhabitants, viz. : 
the green towards or near the river being then a pasture 
ground and not inhabited ; and afterwards it was called by 
the Saxons Glassonby i.e., Hahitatio sive villa ad Glasson, 
as the other village is named Gamelsby i.e., habitatio 
Gamelli, the first founder of any building there. And 
Gamelsby was a town before the Irish possessed the place. 


Both were one seignory bounded in then at the north by 
the rill or httle beck called ... * that falleth from 

the east mountains by and so descendeth 

westward through Kirkoswald park into Eden which doth 
bound it on the west, from whence the Lordship is extended 
of a great breadth into the mountains untill it bound with 
Aldred's town-moor a great waste on the east. 

Gamelsby and Glassonby were given by K. Hen. i"' 
William the Conqueror's son) unto one Hildred and his 
heirs to be holden of the crown by cornage in capite red- 
dendo per annum 2s de Cornagio, from whom it descended 
to a daughter named Christian being ward to King John 
who gave the wardship to William de Ireby. She was the 
daughter of Odard son of Odard son of Odelyne son to 
the said Hildred. William de Ireby had by Christian his 
wife two daughters and heirs Christian and Eva. Eva had 
a rent-charge out of the land and was married to Robert 
D'evill and after to Adam de Chartres. She released to 
her sister Christian the wife of Thomas Lassells of Bolton, 
who had issue Aruinna Lassells married to John Seaton 
whose son Christopher Seaton forfeited the same and 
other lands to K. Ed. i^' by taking part with Robert 
Bruce and the Scots. 

The King thereupon gave his lands in Gamelsby and 
Unthank to William Latimer father to William who had 
issue William Latimer father to Elizabeth the wife of 
John Nevill, father to Ralf Earl of Westmorland, who 
gave his lands in Cumberland and diverse others to 
George his son Lord Latimer from which George they 
descended as their limitation directed to the Lords Lati- 
mers named in the ensuing catalogue untill the last Lord 
Latimer dyed. And then the four co-heirs his daughters 
entered. The heir male is Edmund now Lord Latimer.

same of one of their founders Robert Eaglesfield some- 
time chaplain to Ed. 3'^'^'^ wife named Phillippa, who 
endowing the college as chief founder called the same 
Queen's College. The said Robert had Ravenwick in the 
first year of Ed. 3'^'^ and one named Thomas Stavely and 
Margaret his wife 20 Ed. i^'. The Stavelies (ancestors 
to the said Thomas Stavely), held it from the Conquest. 
For Henry i^' gave it to one Adam de Stavely and his 
heirs, tenendum per cornagium de Rege. That river is called 
Raven of the violent fall and running thereof. Adam 
Stavely was also Lord of Dent and Sedbergh. 

KiRKoswALD. Kirkoswald* Ecclesia Sancto Oswaldo 

* The demesnes of Kirkoswald are now ( 16S7), the inheritance of Timothy Fether-

. . . being taken prisoner at Chester fight, having been a zealous promoter of 
K. Charles i against parliament and commonwealth as it was called. They area

sacra is the name of the town and parish there and of very 
antient time it hath been so termed. The castle was 
built by the Engaynes Lords of Burgh, Ishall, Herriby and 
Kirkoswald. It was first founded by Radulf Engayne, 
but far short of that beauty and state which it had after- 
wards by his successors. Sir Hugh Morvill in K. John's 
time inclosed the park in the second year of that reign by 
the King's license. And Radulphus de Levington that 
married Ada daughter of Johan Morvill daughter and co- 
heir of Hugh Morvill, added thereunto a part of Gamelsby 
and Glassonby. Thomas son of Thomas de Molton and 
John de Castre that married the widow of Thomas Multon 
of Gilsland in Ed. 2""^^ time made additions to the castle. 
But the Lord Thomas Dacre that married the heir of 
Greystock did finish it and mote it about with great 
charge which notwithstanding in the third descent after 
him is now in a manner altogether ruinous. 

It was first parcel of the seignory of Adam son of Sweine 
son of Ailrich, and granted forth with a daughter to Trives 
Lord of Burgh chief forester in fee of Englewood Forest, 
by whose daughter Ibria wife to Radulf Engayne it came 

usually write themselves Featherston-haugh. This estate belonged to Leonard 
Dacre in Q. Ellz. time, and upon his rebellion and forfeiture came to the Crown. 
K. James Ano. R. sui S>'o granted it to John Eldred and Wm. Whitmore of Lon- 
don Fsq. for go years who assigned the same term to Tho. Bartram. 

The Seignory is now (Ano. 1687) in Thomas Lennard Earl of Sussex Lord 
Dacre. Gilpin. 

Part of the demesnes of Kirkoswald are now (1749) the inheritance of the 
Featherstones, who are a branch of the Featherstones of Featherstonhaugh, com. 
Northumberland, and generally write their names Featherstonehaugh or halgh. 
The first of them I meet with was 

Henry who married a daughter of Wyberghs of Clifton. 
Timothy, afterwards knighted, their son, who was a great royalist during 
the civil war and being taken prisoner at Chester fight was executed for fighting 
against the parliament. He married a daughter of the Patricksons of Calder 
Abbey and had issue 

Thomas who married a daughter of the Dacres of Lanercost, and had 

Timothy who married a daughter of the Bellinghams of Levins, and 

had issue 
Heneage who married one Lidstone a Devonshire Lady, and had issue 
Timothy now in possession. The arms of this family are gules three

to him. This Lordship did contain Kirkoswald, New 
Staffoll or Staffle, Ravenwick, Harskeugh, Huddleskeugh, 
Little Croglin, and Kabergh alias Langbergh, and all the 
lands and waste towards the east mountains from the river 
Eden on the west and between Croglin water on the north 
and the little rill Dale Raghon beck on the south that di- 
vides it from Glassonby and Gamelsby. The heirs of Adam 
son of Swene were Yorkshire men therefore not regarded 
here and the owners of Kirkoswald commanders. And 
after the making of Magna Charta and the rebellion of 
Roger Montebegon mesne Lord the terrtenants and inferior 
Lords held it of the King in baronia immediately. 

Newstaffol or Staffle lyes between Kirkoswald and Ain- 
staple, from the river Eden to the mountains. It is a fee 
of Kirkoswald and gave name to a family so called. The 
issue male whereof ended about the time of King . . 
and then the inheritance fell to daughters who did transfer 
it by their marriages to the Chambers, Mulcasters, and 
Blennerhassetts of Carliell. 

Croglin parva stands in the same parish and township 
and is a fee of Kirkoswald. It was antiently the Beau- 
champs, untill K. Hen. 7"^ time, and then the Dacres 
Lords paramount purchased it to their seignory. Antiently 
toward the time of K. Hen. i=* one Vghtred held a part 
thereof, and Dame Ibria de Trivers another. And after- 
wards one Elias de Croglin, William his son and William 
son of William his nephew who gave some part of the 
same to the house of Wederhall, which Roger Beauchamp 
confirmed, that is the fifth part of the town now (as I 
think) called Cringle Dyke. 

Harskeugh. Harskeugh superior silva is a village or 
stead near Ravenwike, now the lands of Henry son of 
Christopher son of Sir Thomas Dacre Knt, who holds it 
by purchase from K. Hen. 8"^ and was belonging to the 
priory of Lanercost. The priors predecessor had it of the 
gift of Dame Ada de Engaine, daughter of William son of 


Ralph Engayne. Her son Hugh de Morvill son of Simon 
de Morvill, confirmed it to the prior in K. Hen. 2^^ time 
or in the beginning of King John's reign. And before it 
belonged to Kirkoswald as part of that seignory. The 
Channons used it for cattle and the mountains for sheep 
pasture. And thereupon I should think that stoney hill to 
be called Careg-monach in old evidences and now corruptly 
Cattermanak, but that the word Carrock is British or Irish 
and therefore some deal more antient. By some others 
religious therefore having right there it hath been so named 
before the conquest. 

HuDLESKEUGH. Huddleskeugh Capreolarum Silva was 
in times past a woody place on the common pasture of 
Kirkoswald where the township of Kirkoswald and the 
Lords thereof wintered their herds of young goats, but 
now the wood is gone and the place is become a little 
village demised to tenants. In King John's time one 
Robert de Hudleskeugh held it of the Morvills Lords of 

Kirkoswald, and then one Radulf de toff 

in Westmorland gave a part thereof to the house of 
Wetherall for Sir Hugh Morvill's soul (that killed Thomas 
a Beckett Archbishop of Canterbury), his landloi^d some- 
time of the same or the feoffor that gave it to his ancestor. 
And the prior presently granted it to Robert de Salkeld by 
consent of Robert then abbot of York, and to any of 
Robert Salkeld's sons in heritage whom he would make 
choice of. I take the same Robert Salkeld to be called 
Robert de Hudleskeugh, because he then did dwell there. 



The Barony of The ^reat barony of Gilsland lyeth on 
GiLSLAND. the east side of the river Eden all along 

the river side from the border of Lin- 
stok and Crosby barony unto Northskeugh beck, a rill that 
divides Ainstaplygh from the same. Above that beck to- 
wards the mountains the border of Gilsland compasseth in 
Croglin up eastward into the fells, where the bounder of the 
county divides the barony from Northumberland untill the 
head of a rill called Powtross. Then the Powtross untill 
it be received of Irthing : and from thence the river Irthing 
itself till it receive Troutbeck. And thence Troutbeck 
untill the head thereof on the north-east side of the same 
on the utmost limits both of the barony and county. 

It is called Gilsland of many little narrow valleys in the 
same, which the inhabitants call Gills, in latin Valles, in 
French Vaulx. 

This great barony was given by the Earl Randolph 
Meschiens to one Hubertus to be holden of him by two 
Knights fees and by cornage.* The same Hubert was 
called de Vallibus or Vaulx of the dales and valleys between 
hills whereof that country is everywhere full. That 
French word Vaulx (pronounced Vaus) became thence a 
sirname to the said Hubert and his posterity there, and to 
diverse other families that took their beginning from the 

* For the true history and descent of this Barony, and the story of Gillesbueth, 
see Tlie Barony oj Gils'.aiid, by R. S. Ferguson, F.S.A., Transactions Cumber- 
land and Westmorland Archaeo. and Antiq. Society, vol. iv. p. 446, also The Pipe 
Rolls Cumberland, H'estmorland and Durham, pp. lix. Henry H., granted it to 
Hubert de Vallibus, who took his name from tlie family possessions in Normandy. 



younger brothers of this house : as Vaulx of Triermaine, 
of Ainstaplygh, of Caterlen, of Caldbeck, &c. 

Hubertus was a kinsman or follower of the said Earl 
Randolph in the latter end of the Conqueror's time when 
the peace of the county began to be established, and 
served under the Earl's brother William Meschiens there 
in Gilsland. 

King Henry i^' confirmed this barony unto the said 
Hubert to be holden of the King in capite, when the Earl 
Randolf resigned the county of Cumberland to the King 
and obtained the Earldom of Chester after the death of 
Richard the second Earl of Chester who with the said 
King's children coming out of Normandy was drowned in 
the sea on the coast of England, to which Richard the 
said Randolf was next heir and cousin german, the son 
of John Bohun by his wife Margaret the sister of Hugh 
Lupus first Earl of Chester. 

The said Hubert did bear to his arms checqer d'or et 
gules. His seal was a griphon eating a lacert.* 

After he was possessed of the barony peaceabl}- he gave 
diverse parts thereof by the name of mannors and other 
lands some lo the antient inhabitants and other to his 
friends and kinsmen : and such as he so preferred he bound 
them by alliance and marriage to his house and by all 
other good means he could devise. 

He gave Denton in Gilsland to one Wescop, by his deed 
of feoffment in these words: Omnibus Cumbrensibus Franci- 
genis Alienigenis, Danis, Normannis, Hubertus de Vallibus 
Salutem &c., which makes probably to prove his antiquity 
and what people did then or late before inhabit that 

Hubert de Vallibus had two brethren Robert de Dalston 
and Reginald de Soureby ; to this Reginald he gave Carlat- 

* A lizard. Editor. 


ton in Gilsland and Hubertby beside Carliell, which gift 
Randolph Meschiens confirmed. 

He gave also Farlam to one Westfalan, and Chorkby to 
to one Odard, and divers other manners and lands in Gils- 
land partly to his followers and partly to the antient 
inhabitants to lye them more firmly to his house. Yet his 
new reconciled enemies continued but a short time his 
friends, for in King Stephen's time when the Scots under 
their King David and Earl Henry FitzDavid possessed the 
county of Cumberland, they stood with the antient heir 
one Gillesbueth or Gill son of Bueth, against Hubert's 
title to Gilsland. 

I read of one Beweth a Cumberland man, about the 
time of the conquest. He builded Bewcastle and was 
Lord of Buecastle Dale. His son Gillesbeweth had a pre- 
tended right to all or part of the barony of Gilsland, at 
least to that part of the same which adjoineth to Bew- 
castle. He was kinsman to the antient Lords of Burgh 
barony which were before the conquest either by consan- 
quinity or affinity. This Gillesbeweth and Bueth his father 
it is said stood with Hubert de Vallibus and before him 
with William Meschiens when he lay there in garrison by 
commandment of his brother Earl Randolph, in the Con- 
queror's time, the father Beweth being then a follower 
of Gospatrick the great. But attempting something after- 
wards for the recovery of his antient right of which it seems 
he was dispossessed or upon some other discontent he was 
banished. And though the register book of the Abbey of 
Lanercost reports his son Gillesbeweth (who is there called 
Gill fil Beweth) to be Lord of Gilsland, yet he never pos- 
sessed a foot in the same, for that he was an infant at the 
time of his father's banishment and was afterwards seated 
in Scotland where he dwelt till he was slain, as will after be 
made appear. His children and posterity in Scotland were 
called of his name Gillesbeweth or Lairds Gillesbeweth 
corruptly Gillesbies or Lairds of Gillesby, of the place 


where he dwelt which was so called because he first 
builded there. 

Being thus disinherited and malecontent he wasted the 
country and in King Stephen's time when the Scots were 
let into Cumberland he took that opportunity to incite as 
many as he could to assist him to recover his estate in 
Gilsland from Hubert de Vallibus. And it seems notwith- 
standing the alliances and other obligations which the 
said Hubert had laid upon the inhabitants to bind them 
to him they took part with Gillesbeweth as the right heir. 

But afterwards when Henry FitzEmpress obtained the 
crown of England and took Cumberland again from the 
Scots, he regranted the barony of Gilsland to Hubert de 
Vallibus in Jicbc verba — Totam terramquam Gillfil Bueth tenuit 
et de incvemento Chorkby quant Westubright fil Willmi Stephen 
tenuit et Caterleng ctim molendino quce Willitred fil Halden 
tenuit. Afterwards about the loth year of Hen. 2^^ Hubert 
dyed so that K. Hen. 2"*^ rather confirmed Gilsland to 
Hubert de Vaulx than first gave it, for if Hubert then lived 
he was of extreme age. Yet the copy of an inquisition 
returned by the Sherriff of Cumberland into the Exchequer 
saith : Robertus de Vallibus tenet terrani suam de Dno Rege 
per servicium duoruni Militum quam Rex Henricus pater Dni 
Regis dedit Hugoni de Vallibus antecessori suo per prcedidum 
servicium. This inquisition was taken in King John's time. 

Upon the grant by K. Hen. 2""^ unto Hubert de Vallbus, 
Robert de Vallibus his son a valorous gentleman and well 
learned in the law of this land, entered into the barony 
of Gilsland and enjoyed the same, but yet not so but 
that Gillesbeweth still continueth to give him disturbance, 
whereupon a meeting for agreement was appointed between 
them under trust and mutual assurance of safety to each 
other (which meeting they call a tryste). At this meeting 
Robert de Vallibus slew the said Gill which shameful 
treason made him bear arms and betake himself to his 
book at the Inns of Court, where he so profited that he 


came justice itinerant into Cumberland in the 23'''' year of 
K. Hen, 2"'^, with Ranulph Glanvill and Robert Piknet his 
associates (which Ranulph Granvill succeeded Richard 
Lucy in the office of Lord Chief Justice of England, in the 
26''' year of that king, when Richard became a monk in the 
Abbey of Lenos or Westwood, resigning that office for age 
and debility). Robert de Vallibus was of so much account 
with Hen. 2"'^, that that King did little in Cumberland with- 
out his advice and council, yet could not his conscience be 
at quiet untill he made satisfaction for the murder of Gilles- 
beweth, by endowing Holy Church with part of that patri- 
mony which occasioned the murder, and therefore he 
founded the priory of Lanercost in Gilsland. 

The king remitted 18'' cornage rent due out of these 
lands to this Robert ; yet he was fined for suffering money 
to be current in his liberties, which the king had forbid by 
proclamation, and for the escape of certain prisoners, 
Robert dyed without issue male and Hugh his kinsman 
and next heir succeeded him, to whom K, Hen, 2"^ for the 
better strengthening of his title confirmed the Barony of 
Gilsland, as appears by the old inquisition afterwards 
taken in K. John's time, to whom succeeded Ranulph de 
Vallibus in the seignory of Gilsland in Rich, i^' time ; and 
after Ranulph his son and heir Robert de Vallibus other- 
wise called Robert fil Radi. This was the same Robert 
Vaulx that was found to be tenant of the land by the 
said inquisition taken in King John's time, and remaining 
yet of record. He confirmed to the priory of Wederhall 
certain lands in Korkby, Denton, Newby and Burdoswald, 
as lord paramount. 

After this Robert Vaux, Hubert was Baron of Gilsland, 
whose daughter and heir Matild or Maud lady of Gilsland 
was married to Thomas son of Thomas de Multon and Ada 
Morvill daughter of Hugh Morvill, by whom she had 
issue the third Thomas Multon, called Thomas de Multon 
de Gilsland, who died in the 23'''^ year of King Edward i'^'. 


By this Maud* the Vaux's lands in Cumberland were trans- 
ferred to the Multons, who enjoyed the same for four 
descents lineally from father to son named all successively 
Thomas with some addition. 

The first Thomas Multon married Ada Morvill, late 
wife to Richard Lucy by whom he had issue Thomas the 
second, called Thomas fil Thomse ; and by a former wife he 
had issue Lambert Multon and Alan Multon, whom he 
married to the two daughters and co-heirs of Richard 
Lucy, named Annabill and Alice. Lambert by his wife 
Annabil became lord of Egremont, and Alan by his wife 
was lord of the moiety of Allerdale, and the twentieth part 
of Egremont. 

The second Thomas Multon named fil Thomse married 
Matild Vaux as aforesaid, and by her had issue Thomas 
Multon de Gilsland his heir of Burgh and Gilsland, and 
two younger sons Edward, and Hubert to whom he gave 
Ishall, which Hubert bore for his arms the same coat 
which the Lighs of Ishall his heirs by blood now give, 
viz. : five pieces barwise azure and argent. t See the rest

t After the attainder of the Lord Dacres and the marriage of the two sisters and 
co-heirs of the Dacres with the two sons of the D. of Norfolk (which see ante p. 
70), the barony of Gilsland came to 

William Lord Howard a younger son of Thomas D. of Norfolk and the 

Lady .... his wife after whose death it descended upon 
Charles Howard Esq., his grandson ( . . , . Howard his eldest son 
dying in the lifetime of his father^ He married Ann daughter of Lord 
Howard of Escrick, and upon the restoration of K. Charles the 2nd 
was made Earl of Carlisle. He dyed An. Dm. 16S . and his estate and

Ainstaple it turns to StaffoU and divides them till it be 
received of Eden. It is called of two British words careg 
a rock and lyn a water. Of these words is corruptly framed 
ths present name Crog-lyn, which gives name to the town 
and church. It was antiently (Hen. 2""^) the freehold of 
one Philip Hastings, in whose issue male it descended till 
Ed. i^' time and then Croglin and his other lands in West- 
morland fell to his daughters, married to 

Wharton, ancestor to the now Lord Wharton and to War- 
copp, but now the Lord Wharton holds it all to himself. It 
is part of Gilsland and holden of the lords thereof. One 
of these Hastings was with King ... at the seige 
of Jerusalem, and received a grant of the king there of 
lands which the king gave him in England. The Lord 
Wharton's coat is the arms of those Hastings, but he 
hath added to them a border of Or charged with lion's paws 
in saltire about the Hastings coat, which is a manche 
argent in a field sable. 

Chorkby. The mannor of Chorkby in Gilsland hath 
been from the Conquest of England a gentleman's seat. 
It was given by Hubert first baron of Gilsland to one 
Odard to whom also the Earl Randulph gave the mannor 
of Warthwik on the west side of the river Eden. Odard 
had issue Osbert and William. Osbert succeeded in the 
inheritance, and granted to the house of Wederhall the 
chamber of St. Constantine, and diverse liberties in 
Chorkby and lands in Warthwik. Osbert died without 
issue, wherefore the mannor fell to his brother William 
who had issue John and Robert by his wife Oswina. John 
was eldest yet he seated himself at W^arwik and let his 
brother Robert possess Chorkby. William son of Odard 
had issue another son named Alan who was Lord of Lang- 
thwait, his brother Robert gave him lands in Warthwik, 
and another son called Ranulf. 

After Robert son of William son of Odard, I find one 
Adam de Chorkby a Knt, and William son of Roger and 



Osuina his wife Lords thereof. In the 23rd year of Ed. 
i^' one Walter de Routbury was Lord thereof. And in 
Ed. 2"'*'" time Andrew de Harcla Earl of Carliell forfeited 
the same. And in Ed. 3'"^'' time Richard Salkeld was 
Lord thereof.*

The said Lord VVilHam by his marriage with one of the daughters and co-heirs 
of George Lord Dacres of Gilsland (but truly by grant from the crown) was Lord 
of Gilsland, which from him descended to Kdward now Earl of Carlisle. He 
purchased Chorkby of Sir Francis Salkeld Knt, which (together with other lands 
to a good value) he settled upon Sir Fr. Howard his :;nd son, from whom it des-

Castle Carok. The first freeholder that I read of, 
of Castle Carok, was one Eustace de Vallibus, to whom 
Hubert de Vallibus first Lord of Gilsland gave it in Hen. 
2"** time, together with Hayton also. This Eustace gave 
a carucat of land in Hayton and another in Castle Carok. 
to the house of Lanercost. It is called Castle Carok 
quasi Castrum de Rupe and was also in Hen. 2°*^ time the 
inheritance of one Robert de Castle Carok, after him it 
descended successively to Robert his son and Richard his 
grandchild, whose son Robert was the last of that name 
inheritor thereof. He died in Ed. i^' time and left three 
daughters which he begot on the body of Christian de Crok- 
dake (aunt and one of the two co-heirs of John son of 
John son of Adam Crokdaik), viz : Johan wife of Thomas 
Newbiggin, Christian wife of Michael Apulby, and Margery 
wife of William Eglesfield. Newbiggin's part descended 
to three daughters and heirs, viz., Helen wife of Richard 
Hale, Margaret wife of Thomas Hale, and Alice wife of 
John Hale, all of Kirkby Thore. Alice's part came to the 
Lothers of Crokdaik, and from them to the Musgraves 
of Crokdaik, now owners thereof. Margaret's part by a 
daughter named Alice wife of Collinson fell to two daugh- 
ters, Johan wife of Gilbert Carlton and Margaret wife of 
John Bethom of Thrimby. And in the fourth descent 
Elizabeth Bethom their heir wife of Robert Salkeld had

issue Roger who sold it to Loughe. I find no issue of the 
eldest sister Helen, but one William Kitchen who sold 
the ninth part of Castle Carok to Ranulph Daker that 
married Multon's heir.* 

The purparty of Christian Castle Carok fell by her 
daughter named Christian to William Ritson, and by their 
daughter Mariott to Thomas Alanby, and by their daughter 
to John de Westlevington, and by his daughter Elizabeth 
to Alexander Highmore, whose heir in the third or fourth 
descent sold it to Daker. 

The third co-heirs part Margery wife of Eaglesfield. 

Hayton. Hayton Villa in Colle was freehold in Hubert 
Vaulx's time who gave it to Eustace Vaulx his cousin, and 
so it continued four descents. The Lord thereof had a 
daughter and heir married to John son of Robert son of 
Anketin de Denton.

Farelam. Farleham hath antiently been a fee of Gils-

were both brethren to one William de Kersmier the . . . 
of Willitred son of Haldan sometime Lord of Katerleing, 
which K. Hen. a"'^ gave to Hubert Vaulx after he had 
seised it, (because Willitred took part with K. Stephen) as 
forfeited. And therefore in King John's time the said 
William de Kersmyra brought a writ of mort d'ancestor 
against William Vaux son of Hubert and Robert son of 
the said William then Lords of Katerleng, but could not 
recover the land. The said Walter de Windsore had issue

the land in 23 Ed. i^'. And in Ed. 3'''*^ time John de 
Farleham held it who gave it unto Ranulph Daker and 
Margret Multon his wife then Lords of Gilsland, and to 
their heirs after John de Farleham's death and of one 
Andrew Latton. Thenceforth it hath continued demesne to 
the Lords of Gilsland. The said Walter Wyndsore gave for 
arms a saltier sable in field d'argent. There are some of 
this sirname left at this day which are descended from one 
John de Wyndsore, brother to the second Walter Windsore 
(to whom he gave Farlam parva). John had issue Rayner 
and Solomon, and Rayner had Bernard the father of 
Richard, which Solomon and Richard endowed the houses 
of Wederhall and Lanercost with lands in little Farlam. 

Brampton. Brampton in Gilsland was for the most 
part demesne lands and the town was of long time a 
market town, first granted so to be by King .... to 
. Lord of Gilsland, and so continueth to this 
day. At Brampton the Lords do yearly keep the courts 
leet and view of frank pledge for the barony of Gilsland 
now, howbeit the head and chief seat was at Irthington in 
the Vaulx's time and the Multon's. The town is now all 
customary tenancies or demesnes for the Dakers have 
wronge out all the freeholders of Irthington and Brampton 
save Corkby and some few small tenancies of the meaner 
sort of people. 

CoMBCATCH. Comb-catch Convallis ad dorsam Collis, 
is now a farm in Brampton parish and is demesne. It 
stands in a bottom on the backside of a hill, and is en- 
vironed with hills and wood ground. In K. Hen. 3'''' and 
Ed. i^' time one Robert del More held it as a fee of Bramp- 
ton by Knt service. And after him one John del More and 
his son in Ed. -^"^ and Rich. 2"^^ times. 

Naworth Castle. Naworth castle is now the principal 
seat of the barony of Gilsland, and hath so been from Ed. 
2""^ time. In the 36th of Ed. 3'^'* Margret daughter and 
heir of Thomas Multon (last of that name Lord thereof), 


dyed seised thereof ; and before that time I do not read of 
it. The ancient capitall mansion house of Gilsland was 
at a place in Irthington parish called the Castlestead, 
where is as yet to be seen the ruins of the castle where 
Gill fil Bueth dwelt, and which Hubert Vaux had of the 
gift of Henry 2"'*. And it was called the mannor of Irth- 
oon-towne, contractly Irthington villa ad rivttm Irthing. 
The river gave name to the town, mannor, and the castle. 
The Lords thereof suffered it to decay as a thing of rude 
edification, and of the ruins thereof built Naworth which 
in success of time was bettered by the owners and by like 
time through negligence more than age begins now to 
decline and lose that beauty and strength which it lately 
had, as all such worldly things do which are subject to 

Denton. Denton villa in profimdo. The place in Gils- 
land where Denton stands is a great deep valley. The 
Irish call " deep " in their language Dgen. Upon that 
Irish word the place was called by the Saxons Dsein and 
upon the first habitations there Daein-town. There are two 
Dentons there. Over Denton which is in Northumber- 
land* now the Withrington's lands and stands beyond the 
great Bottom ; and Nether Denton in Cumberland late the 
Dakers lands in the Low. Both of them are parcel of the 
barony of Gilsland. The first possessor that I read of 
was one Wescop, to whom Hubert de Vallibus Lord of 
Gilsland gave Denton in or about Hen. 2""^^ time, Wescope 
gave it to one Gilles Bueth or Bueth's Barnt (otherwise 
that Gillesbueth and Bueth Barn was but one person). 
He had issue Robert son of Bueth, who died without issue. 
His sisters were married to Addock Lord of Bothcastre 
and to Eustace Vaux Lord of Hayton in Gilsland ; the 
one had Over Denton and the other had Nether Denton,

which was the two moieties then by partition. Hayton's 
part was given to John son of Robert son of Anketin or 
Asketill de Denton, and Robert brother to the said John 
married the heir to the other part. The said Robert fil 
Bueth was their mother's brother. He gave the church 
to the house of Wedderhall, and after his death David son 
of Tirry and Robert son of Asketill, gave it to the house 
of Lanercost, whereupon grew great suit till the contro- 
versy was ended by the mediation of the popes legate who 
divided the profits between them and gave the presentation 
of the vicarage to the Bishop. 

Over Denton 7 Ed. i'" was given by Richard Stowland 
and Helena his wife to John Withrington with whose 
issue male it remains at this day. 

And Nether Denton descended from the said John son 
of Robert son of Anketin to John and to Richard Denton 
Knight his son's son, whose daughter Margaret wife to 
Adam Copley of Bateley in Craven, had it in marriage 17 
Ed. 2"*^. John son of Adam had issue Richard Copley 
whose daughter Isabel wife to Adam Denton son of 
Thomas del Hall had Denton from her father in marriage 
in Hen. 4* time. Thomas Denton Esq., now of Warnell, 
the son of Thomas son of John holds Warnell in exchange 
for Denton, which exchange was made in the 23rd of Hen.

However the first Sir Thomas was a man of great prowess and made his fortune 
by the sword, for Edward the sixth (pursuing the intentions of his father Henry 
8.), gave him the scite of this dissolved priory and the estate belonging thereto as 
a reward for his services, as appears by the following verses which were formerly 
in the windows of the dining room belonging to the family, but are now in the 
east window of the Parish Church.

prior and convent of Lanercost (which was there first by 
him founded in the name of Mary Magdalen) in these 
terms Landam de Lanercost et villam de Walton, and bounders 
them by certain limits. He gave them also the churches 
of Walton, Irthington, Brampton, Karlatton and Farlam,

Colman, Roswrageth, and Apletreethwait, and divers 
liberties for their goods in his forests thereunto adjoyning

much land and revenue to have their bodies buried there and 
for their souls health, as the Engaynes and Morvills in 
Harskeugh, the Windsors in Catch and Farleham, Dentons

of the place caused the first name, for there is a great bog

dale near unto the town. The first possessor that I read 
of was one Alfred de Camok in K. Hen. 2"'^ time. After-

Richard Gernon the elder, and to Johan Morvill the second 
daughter and co-heir of Sir H ugh Morvill) had issue Hawise 
the wife of Sir Eustace I^aliol. Hawise died without issue, 
therefore Stapleton and other the Levington's lands fell to 
her father's six sisters so -became Matild de Carrick her 
heir of Stapleton. Roland Carrick her son gave it to 
Piers Tyllioll in Ed. y^'' time. And at that time the Staple- 
tons held the other moiety which descended to the Mus- 
graves, and the other moiety to the Moresbies and Covills 
the heirs of the Tyllyolls.

Leversdale. Leversdale was first given to one Bernard 
le Flemminge by Robert the son of Hubert Lord of 


Gilsland in Hen. 2"'^' time. He had two sons Robert and 
Walter which did successively inherit. After them William 
de Leversdall in the latter end of K. Hen. 3''''= time. He

Newby. j 

Carlatton. Karlatton stands in Gilsland but is no 
part thereof. In Hen. 2'"^ time one Gospatrick fil Mac- 
benok held it of the King and paid 50 marks. Mac-ben-og 
(i.e., filius jimioris uxoris) was an Irishman and took part 
with K. Stephen, thei-efore his son Gospatrick compounded 
with K. Henry for his father's living. After him K. John 
gave it to Robert Ross of Wark in Tindall, together with 
Sowerby and Hubbertby, untill the said Robert Ross 
recovered his lands in Normandy, which he lost in the 
King's service. Hen. 3'^'' took them from him and gave 
them to Alexander King of Scots and his successors who 
held the same untill K. Edw. i^' seised them for the revolt 
of John Baliol K. of Scots, since which time it was Regiuin 
Dominicum untill K. Rich. 2'"^ time who granted the same 
to Radulf Nevill Earl of Westmorland, and Johan his 
wife. After him it descended to Richard his son Earl of 
Salisbury. And after him to Richard Earl of Warwick 
his son, who was slain at Barnet. After whose death King 
Ed. 4"" gave it to his brother Richard Duke of Gloucester 
being afterwards King. And since that time it continued 
in the possession of the crown. I read of one Ughtred de 
Karlatton and after him Robert de Karlatton in Henry 3'^'* 
and Ed. i^' time but whether they held any freehold there 
it appears not. 

Bewcastle. Bothcastre alias Bewcastle. Northwards 
above Levington toward the wasts between Nicholl Forest 
(part of Lyddall) and the barony of Gilsland, lyes Bew- 
castledale, which took that name first of the castle there 


built by one Bewth which was called Bothcastre after- 
wards Bewcastle and thereupon the dale where it stands 
was called Bewcastle Dale. Antiently it was the seat 
of the said Beweth then Lord of Gilsland, or a great part 
thereof but he being banished for taking part with the 
Scots in King Stephen's time, seated himself in Scotland 
as did his son Gillesbueth after him, and this dale together 
with all the rest of his lands were given by Hen. 2°*^ 
to Hubert de Vallibus, but whether or no he enjoyed it 
does not appear. But shortly after it was possessed by 
one Addock who married with the Lord of Denton, which 
Denton the said Hubert de Vallibus had then lately given 
to one Wescop his follower or kinsman. But whether the 
said Addock was kinsman, friend, or enemy to Beweth's 
posterity I find not. It would seem that Gillesbueth being 
dispossessed himself and he and his posterity forced to 
settle in Scotland, he made the place too hot for any of 
Hubert Vaulx's posterity, wasting all that part of the 
country in revenge by frequent inroads upon the same, 
for being greatly infested by the Scots, as it is to this 
day, none durst inhabit there till the barons of Burgh 
barony took upon them to summer their cattle there and 
made them shields and cabbins for their people, dwelling 
themselves in tents and booths for defence, at which time 
it was a waste forest ground and fit for the depasturing of 
the cattle of the Lords of Burgh and their tenants they 
having no other pasture for them, because the barony itself 
was very populous and well inhabited, fitting better for 
corn and meadow than for pasture. And thereupon it is 
always found in antient inquisitions as parcel of that 
barony and to be holden of the same. But it is not within 
the said barony for the two seignories of Lyddall and 
Levington lye between Burgh and it. It became inhabited 
originally long before Hen. 3'''^ time upon the building of 
that castle which is now there standing. And in Hen. 3'^'^ 
days Richard Baron of Levington by his right in Burgh 


held there demesne lands and other lands, rents, and 
services as parcel of Burgh. 

In Ed. 2"*^ time Adam de Swinburne held the same of 
the Lord of Burgh, Ranulph Dacre and Margaret his wife, 
and after him Adam Swinburne his son. 

In Ed. 3'''^ time Sir John Strivelyn Knt, in the right of 
his wife Jacoba .... Swinburne's daughter. 



The Barony of The barony of Lyddal* (now called 
LiDDALL als. EsK. Esk) inhabited by the Grahams bor- 
dereth upon Scotland lying on the 
north side of the river Eden between the river of Leven 
and Scotland. It containeth Esk, Lyddall, Arthurett, 
Stubhill, Carwendlow, Speersyk, Randolf-Levington, Eas- 
ton, Northeaston, and Brakenhill. The freeholders of 
this barony defrayed the charges of the baron's eldest son 
when he was to be made Knight and paid his daughters' 
portions. Solpart and all that great forest untill Lyddis- 
dale called antiently Nichol forest of Nicholas Stuteville 
sometime Lord thereof is also parcel of the barony. It 
was given first after the Conquest to Turgens Brimdas a 
Fleming, by the Earl Randolph Meschiens, and to him 
confirmed by K. Hen. i'''. In King John's time the Lord 
Nicholas Stutevill enjoyed it. His daughter and heir who 
married Sir Hugh Bigot transferred it from the Stutevilles 
to the Bigots. And from them it came to the Lord 
Baldwyne Wake. The said Baldwyne John and Thomas 
Wake held the same successively, and after them Prince 
Edward named the Black Prince, Edward the third's 

* This barony was purchased of the Lord Clifford tempore James I., by Sir 
Richard Graham Bart, who from a low and inconsiderable beginning- by his great 

industry was raised to a great fortune. He married by whom he 

had issue 

Sir George Graham Bart, he married Mary the daughter of . . . Earl of 
Annandale, by whom he had issue Sir Richard his eldest son now 
Viscount Preston, 2 James, 3 William Dean of Carlisle, 4 Reynold, 5 
Fergus. His lady survived him and afterwards married Sir George 
Fletcher of Hutton, Bart. 
Sir Richard Graham the eldest son was by King Charles 2nd created 
Viscount Preston. He married Ann daughter to Charles Earl of 
Carlisle. Gilpin, 


eldest son, in the right of his wife the Earl of Kent's 
daughter, and after her death (she dying without issue) 
King Edward bought it for money of the Earls of Kent 
and gave it to his son John of Gaunt Duke of Lancaster. 
It is now holden by lease as of the Duchy of Lancaster. 



The Barony of Upon the east side of the barony of 
Levington. Lyddall lyes the barony of Levington,* 
which the Earl Randulph Meschiens 
gave and Henry i^* confirmed unto Richard Boyvill a com- 
mander in the Army Royal under the Earl Randulph. 
His posterity changed their sirname from Boyvill unto 
Levington, so many of them as did reside there, viz., the 
Lords of the chief seignory at Kirklevington, a younger 
brother named Reginald Lord of the mannor or capital 
messuage of West Levington, and his posterity Adam, 
Hugh, Hugh, John, and John, whose daughter transferred 
the inheritance of West Levington to Alexander Highmore 
of Harbybrow and his heirs in Ed. 4*^'^ time. And in 
Henry 8'^ time one of the heirs of the said Alexander sold 
the same to the Lord Dacres, whose patrimoney is now in 
the Queen's hands by attainder. And another brother of 
the Boyvills named Randolf also seated himself at Ran- 

* Tromp's purparty of this barony as below, was in the second descent sold to 
Robert Tilliol Knt, and so likewise was another of the purparties of the said 
co-heirs, whereby he became possessed of a third part of Levington barony, which 
from him came at last amongst other of the Tylliol's lands to the Musgraves. 
And Joseph Appleby son of Edmund Appleby now (16S7) enjoys the mannor of 
Kirklevington parcell of the said barony, which Edward purchased the same of Sir 
Edward Musgrave Bart, who in right of his part of the said barony held (as the 
Applebys have done since) a court leet and view of frankpledge at their mannor 
of Kirklevington. Gl I.PIN.

Kirklevington and Castlesteads. Milbourne. 


dolf Levington in Lyddal barony, so naming the place of 
his dwelling which by his daughter in the next discent 
became the Kirkbride's lands, so much doth Almighty God 
scorn that foolish ambitious desire of man, thinking to live 
by trust in himself and by his own will and strength to 
establish his name and succession. Another brother named 
Robert was placed on a carucat of land at Bothcastre and 
thereupon was called Robert de Bothcastre. Another 
brother married the daughter and heir of Thuresbies Lords 
of Thursby and Waverton, his name was Guido Boyvill. 
He gave to his arms argent a frett vert whereunto was 
added a canton in the right corner or quarter of the field, 
of what colour or content I cannot report. I have seen 
his seal of arms at diverse evidences, and the colours on 
glass in St. Maryes church in Carliell on the south side 
of the quire, the canton broken out and defaced. This 
Guido had issue William and he John. They two were 
both Knights and all foresters in Allerdale from Shawk to 
Eln, which was the Westward of the Forest of Englewood 
which office descended unto them from Herbert deThuresby 
first Lord of Thuresby, by the gift of Alan second Lord of 
Allerdale the son of Waldeof. 

Richard de Levington the last of that name baron 
Levington dyed the 34 of K. Hen. 3'"'' his . . . Radulf 
of Levington had issue Hawise his onl}' daughter and 
heir, who was wife to Eustace Balioll and was heir to 
Richard de Levington. And she dying without issue left 
her inheritance of the barony of Levington to ... . 
co-heirs her father's sisters and their children. And her 
moiety of Burgh, Aikton, Kirkoswald, and Leysingby to 
her cousin german Thomas son of Thomas de Multon. 
And her moiety of Glassonby and Gamelsby to Adam de 
Crokdake. Her lands in Stapleton to ... . and her 
lands in Bothcastre to Adam Swynburne. 

The CO heirs of Levington were Richard Kirkbryde, 
William Lockard, Eufemia wife of John Seaton, Walter 


Twinham Knt, Gilbert Suthaik, Matild wife of Niciiolas 
Aghenlocks, Matyld Carrik, Patrick Trompe, Walter son 
of Walter Corry, and Margaret wife of Henry Malton. 

Orton in the barony of Burgh, and Skelton in the 
forest of Englewood, are notwithstanding parcel of this 
barony of Levington. And all the lands that were in the 
possession of the Lords of Levington were by inquisition 
found to be parcel of their barony where ever they lay. 

ScALEBY. Next unto the barony of Levington eastward 
untill Brunskugh Beck lyes the manner and castle of 
Scaleby, which took name first of the buildings there 
which they call scheales or skales more properly of the latin 
word Scalinga a cabbin or cottage. When King Henry i^' 
had established Carliell he gave that Lordship unto one 
Richard the Ryder, whose sirname was Tylliolf* who 
planted habitations there. From him it descended by one 
or two degrees unto Simon Tylliolf, in the latter end of K. 
Hen. 2"*^ time. His son Piers Tylliof or Peter, was ward to 
Geoffrey Lucy by the King's grant about the time of King 
John. (This Geoffrey de Lucy did bear the cap of main- 
tenance before K. Richard i=' at his coronation). Peter 
Tylliolf married the daughter of the said Geoffrey Lucy his 
tutor and guardian, and had issue two sons by her, one 
named Geoffrey after his wife's fathers name, and another 

* The pedigree of the Tilliolf's in the custody of Sir Edward Musgrave makes 
the Geoffrey Tilliol mentioned in the context to be the grandson, not the son of 
Peter, interposing another Geoffrey betwixt them, making the descent as follows:

Carmaunce of Houghton, and by her got the inheritance 
of the sixth part of Houghton. This Adam had Rickarby 
for term of life and was therefore called Adam de Rikarby

Peter Tylliolf died 31 Hen. ^'^ and Geoffrey his eldest 
son aforesaid succeeded him in the inheritance who dyed 
32 Ed. i^t. 


Isabell, wife of John Colvill, unto whom 
she had two sons in the life of her 
father viz., William and Robert. 

William Colvill the eldest, succeeded his 
mother in her part of the Tilliols' 
lands and died 1479, 19 Ed. 4 
without issue male, whereby the 
Tilliols' lands again became sub- 
divided viz., Phillis and Margaret 
his two daughters and co-heirs. 
The older Phillis was married to 
William Musgrave, from whom 
the Musgraves of Crookdaik are 
descended (accords to the pedi- 
gree in the title of Ireby, page 
— which they successively enjoyed 
in right of the said Phillis. 

Margaret second daughter of William 
Colvill, was married to Nicholas 
Musgrave, and transferred Scale-

his posterity. 

Thomas Musgrave son of Margaret,

Sir Edward Musg'rave created Bart., of 
Nova Scotia, married Graham. 

This Sir Edward afterwards suffering great losses on the account of his faithful 
services to King Charles 1. and 11., was forced to dismember a great part of his 
estate. He sold Kirklevington to Edmund Appleby, Houghton to Arthur Forster 
of Stonegarthside, Richardby to Cuthbert Studholme, and Scaleby to Richard 
Gilpin who now 1687 enjoys the same, together with Richardby which he also 
purchased of Michael Studholme son of Cuthbert.

The Colvills aforementioned are in some old writing^s called Colvill als. Tilliol 
which was upon this occasion. After the death of William Colvill the son of 
Isabel one ot the daughters and co-heirs of Peter de Tilliol, Robert the second son 
of the said Isabel pretended a title to the estate of his grandfather alledging that 
he had made a feoffment to the use of his will, and that afterwards he had made 
a will by which he devised that William Colvill his grandson should change his 
name to Tilliol, and have the manners of Houghton, Richardby, Ireby, Solprat, 
his moiety of Newbigging and his third part of Kirklevington together with the 
castle of Scaleby to him and the heirs male of his body, with the remainder to 
Robert the second son of his daughter Isabel, in like manner and upon the same 
condition that he should change his name to Tilliol. But Robert had not this will 
to produce and so was forced to sit without the estate, which was enjoyed accord- 
ing to the former pedigrees, nevertheless to keep on foot his pretentions he assumed 
the name of Tilliol. There is yet extant an authentic instrument under the seal 
of the Comissary General of York dated September 27, 14S1, (which I have in my 
custody) which testifies that one William Martindale Knt, ,lid in the court of York 
for the discharging of his conscience swear that he saw the will and that it pur- 
ported an intail as aforesaid, and that he and others in the favour of Margaret 
second daughter of the said Peter de Tilliol had destroyed it. Gilpin. 

Since Sir Edward Musgrave sold the estate to the Gilpins it has been enjoyed 
as follows :

daughter married John Colvill, and thereb}' transferred 
the inheritance to the Colvills. 

The TylHolfs held (as their posterity now do), the said 
castle and mannor of the crown by cornage all save a 
carucat of land which is holden of the barony of Gilsland. 
It containeth Scaleby, Houghton, and Etardby. 

They were Lords of Solport which they held of Lyddall 
and of Richardby in the barony of Linstock near Carliel, 
which they hold of the Bishop of Carliel. At this 
Richardby, Richard the Ryder their first ancestor seated 
himself whereupon it was so called after his name. And 
the gate port and street in Carliell leading thither is from 
thence called Richardgate or Richardby gate, in old 
evidences vicus Richardi. As in like sort the port and 
street leading toward Bochardby (where the first inhabi- 
tant called Bochardus had a place of dwelling) is called 
Botchardgate, both within the port and without. And the 
other gate Caldew Gate of the river Cawdey running by the 
same. At that time the Scots did tyrannize over the 
country next adjoyning them, which enforced the gentle- 
men to dwell in Carliell, and therefore every man provided 
himself to be served with corn, soyle, and hay, as nigh the 
city as they might : as this Richard at Richardby, Bochard 
at Bochardby, Hubert the baron of Gilsland at Hubbertby,

The Barony of Between the river Eden and Brunskeugh 
Lynstock. Beck lyes the barony of Lynstock and 

Crosby, which is now a seignory of the 
Bishop of Carhell. King Hen. i^' gave Lynstock and 
Carleton to one Walter his chaplain, to be holden of the 
Kings of England by cornage silver to be paid yearly. 
The said Walter voluntarily of himself and by the King's 
licence, took upon him a religious habit of a regular canon 
in the priory of St. Mary in Carliell, and by the King's 
consent he gave Lynstock and Carleton to that house of 
religion in pure alms for ever. Whereupon the King re- 
leased and acquitted the rent and services to the canons 
there and they made the said Walter their prior. He was 
the second prior of that house of St. Mary at Carliell. 
After they were possessed of Lynstock barony they made 
a grange at Crosby which was therefore called Crosby, 
because it was church lands, and sometimes the barony of 
Lynstock is called Crosby which is now become a town of 
many inhabitants. 

At the first foundation of that house of canons by K. 
Hen. i^* and of the Bishop's See at Carliell, both their 
lands were holden pro indiviso as in common. And after 
the first partition thereof made by the Pope's legate Gualo 
Cardinal of St. Martin in King John's time, this barony 
of Linstock fell to the Bishop and his successors, and 
Carlton to the prior and convent and to the Bishops 
remained still undivided untill Pandolph another legate in 
K. Hen. 2^^^ time by the second distribution assigned them 
the Bishops part of Carlton and other things in Cumber- 


land for their moiety of the appropriate church of Werk- 
wurth in Northumberland. 

The aforesaid Walter the prior and Athelwold the first 
Bishop of that See were witnesses to the grant of confir- 
mation of Holm Cultrum made to the abbot there by 
Malcolumb son of Henry the Earl, son of David King of 
Scots, which Malcolumb lived in the beginning of the 
reign of K. Hen. 2"*^ and was king 12 years. 

This barony contained Lynstock, Crosby, Walby, 
Richardby, and Newby. Walby was so called of the 
Picts Wall whereunto it adjoyneth. And Newby as a later 
building, yet now it is an ancient town. For King Henry 
!«' gave the same Newby to one Hildred to be holden of 
the King by cornage, and one Trute succeeded Hildred, 
and Richard son of Trute succeeded his father. In King 
John's time one William son of Barnard, held that land as 
guardian to Richard the son of Richard the son of Trute 
aforesaid. Shortly after the said last Richard son of 
Richard confirmed Newby to Reginald de Carliell and his 
heirs, to be holden of him by paying los. yearly rent 
service to him, and i6s. cornage and foreign service. The 
said Reginald de Carliell gave the same to the abbot and 
convent of Holm Cultrum, reserving the like rents. And 
after the death of Richard son of Richard, his sister 
Margaret wife of Robert de Warthampole daughter and 
heir of Richard son of Richard son of Trute released her 
right to the same Newby unto the monks of Holm Cultrum 
saving the said rents reserved. Bishop Walter himself, 
Thomas and Robert Cherry his successors acquitted the 
abbot and his men there of all services except common 
aids and los. rent due to the Lord of the fee. 

Carghow. Carghow als. Carighow is a village on the 
north-east side of the river Eden between Rowcliff and 
Stainton. It was first a mannor and demesne, the inherit- 
ance and possession of John de Lacy Constable of Chester, 
who held the same of the King immediately by cornage. 


This John Lacy o^ranted the same and Cringledyke (a terri- 
tory there to the same belonging) to William de Vescy and 
his heirs Lord of Alnwick in Northumberland, and of Malton 
in Yorkshire, to be holden of the donor and his heirs for a 
mewed hawk yearly for all services. William Vescy gave 
it to Ewon Karliell Knt, for lands in Yorkshire reserving to 
him and his heirs the same services. And afterwards in the 
second year of Edward i^' Robert de Ross Lord of Werk 
in Tindal died seised thereof, he held the same of Sapience 
the wife of William Carliell the younger, Reddendo a hawk 
or a mark of money yearly ; and discharging the said 
Sapience of foreign service viz., 23*^ de Cornagio ad Scac- 
carium Carliolii. From this Robert Ross it descended by 
many descents in the issue male untill the 32nd year of 
Ed. 3'"''. And shortly after Elizabeth Ross the heir general 
transferred the inheritance to the Parrs of Kendal with 
other lands, in which house it descended by many descents 
untill William Parr late Marquis of Northampton who 
dying without issue the widow Dame Elen exchanged it 
with Queen Elizabeth and took other lands for her jointure 
so it rests now in the crown and in possession of the in- 
habitants as customary tenents.

N. W'" de Lowther was Sheriff of 
Cumberland in the 2'^ & 8'' of Henry 4. 



This Index has no pretension to either completeness or perfection. 
These pretensions could only be justified by a practical revision of 
the whole ground work of the history of Cumberland. Such a task, 
however inviting and even necessary, is one for which the present 
compiler has neither the qualifications nor the leisure. An index, 
moreover, is probably the form least suitable for the presentation to 
the public of the results of such a revision. 

In the course of my work I have often been met by difficult 
questions as to the identity of persons of the same name appearing 
in different parts of the ' Accompt.' It is a necessar}- result of the 
modern method of indexing that such names should appear consecu- 
tively in the first draft, leaving the question of identification for 
subsequent consideration. In every case where there seemed reason- 
able doubt I have entered two, or sometimes three, similar names one 
after the other (adding dates where any were given), so that each 
reader may arrive at a judgment for himself. 

The mistakes of the 'Accompt' are, of course, reproduced in the 
index. In some cases their character is hinted at by notes of inter- 
rogation or other marks of doubtfulness. 

It is to be observed however that a note of interrogation between 
square brackets is frequently no more than a sign of uncertainty 
which of two people of the same name is mentioned at the reference 
immediately preceding it. 

It maybe as well to add that where a place-name begins with 
'Great,' 'Little,' 'Over,' 'Nether,' 'High,' 'Low,' or 'North,' 
' South,' ' East,' or ' West,' it will be found entered under the dis- 
tinctive name. 

The names of counties and of larger territorial divisions are not, 
as a rule, indexed ; nor do the names of sovereigns appear in the index 
when such names are only used to fix dates. 

There is only one entry for each page, though a name may occur 
several times in it. 


The names uf barunies and smaller territorial divisions are given 
in large and small capitals respectively. The figures before the 
colon and dash (: — ) shew in each case the amount of the book that 
is appropriated to the description of the district named. The recur- 
rences of the name in the course of that description (which are very 
frequent) are not separately noted. The figures after the (: — ) relate 
to other parts of the book. 

Where a place name and a surname are identical in form, the 
place name will usually be found entered before the surname. This 
is contrary to the general rule of indexing, but proves the best for 
this book. 

Surnames between square brackets following the names of 
women are their maiden surnames, save in one or two cases where 
only the name of a penultimate, or ante-penultimate, husband is given 
by Denton or his annotators. 

Where the names of a man and a woman are connected by ' and' 
they are husband and wife.
